To the editor: As a new resident of the Gulf Coast area, I recently picked up the Feb. 6-Feb. 19 edition of the Lagniappe. What a funny commentary you (Hidden Agenda by Ashley Trice) had on the recent ice storm.  

As a recent transplant from Iowa, I found it fascinating to see how everyone in the area reacts to ice/snow!  In defense of my new home, it sure makes a huge difference if the road crews don’t have any equipment to combat the precip. Let’s hope that this past storm was a “one off.”

Again congrats on a well written funny commentary about “Camp Sandy.”
