How desperate are Homer folks?

Well, my Subaru got raided during this last snow storm. He/she just stole stuff from the car to stay warmer: some chemical hand and foot warmers and also a fuel stick hand warmer. 

How desperate are the folks nowadays here in Homer? 

Are they out there freezing in this wicked cold time? 

I put in a pair of insulated overalls for the next cold thief.
