Toil and dedication

As we wind down from the last Arctic blast and brace for the next, we ought all to remember the toil and dedication of those that serve the public in opening up roads and rescuing the stranded. Working long hours in extremely trying conditions, in the dark hours of night, snowplow drivers, law enforcement, first responders, firemen, linemen, utility workers and tow-truck drivers quietly and without fanfare do their jobs, so we can do ours. They are out when we are holed up tight and warm in our homes. They are the first ones there when we get caught out in it and can’t get home under our own power. For them it can be said, “Never has so much been done by so few for so many.”
