This past summer when Matt Poessnecker came to the Atkinson Good Samaritan Center to visit his dad, Gene he should have brought along an umbrella.
Matt lives in Hampton, and driving up to visit his wheelchair bound dad for the half hour allotted to families visiting their loved one because of the Corona virus is a one day trip for him. Matt has his own irrigation system company which prohibits weekly visits so the half hour talking with his dad is precious time spent.
The day of the visit he stood outside his Dad's room window anticipating the 30 minutes the two would be able to correspond face to face through the glass. Twelve minutes into the visit the lawn sprinklers came on and the visit was over.
