Patrick, Keating meet with storm evacuees in Marshfield

MARSHFIELD – Accompanied by an unshowered US congressman, Governor Deval Patrick stopped by the Furnace Brook Middle School complex where 100 people, 20 cats and dogs, two geckos and one parakeet have found shelter from the weekend snowstorm.

US Representative William R. Keating, whose district includes this South Shore town and other coastal communities hard hit by the storm, said that he has been without power since Friday. The Democrat, who lives in Bourne, acknowledged that he doused himself with cologne to help others tolerate his presence.
