  1. I was at their door last night and they refused to let me in although the nights are below freezing with ice.I got their address from the police in Wallingford. They told me I could come back today to use their phone to call 211. I have valid ID.

    They turned me away last night, but told me I could come back today to use their phone. Apparently freezing weather, no sleeping bag, valid I.D. and getting their address from the Wallingford police doesn't count as an emergency.
