t's 4:00 a.m. and there's a big commotion outside. Oh, O.K., it's the snowplow drivers. We had 15 inches of snow yesterday; today the highlight of the weather forecast will be high winds and single-digit temperatures.
I am grateful for the hardworking snowplow drivers. The person I'm hearing right now does this as a side job. He'll go to another full-time job later this morning. Our city and county snowplow drivers worked until 10:00 last night and started up again at 2:00 this morning. Even in the midst of the blizzard yesterday (yes, it was definitely a blizzard!) the plow drivers were out doing their absolute best to keep the roads open for those of us who had no choice but to go to work.
If you've ever had to deal with an intense winter storm, send a special blessing to the snowplow drivers. At this time of the year and in this part of the country, I think they're the ones that keep the world turning!
