I want to take this time to thank our State, County, and City snowplow drivers. These individuals work long hours with very little thanks. People seem to forget just how many roads we have and how little drivers to cover all those roads. They can’t be everywhere at the same time or make everyone’s road be the first to be plowed. It is just the beginning of winter, and we have several more months to go, so thank the drivers we have, be patient, and be kind while we get through these months together.
