2. Thank You, Public Works It's been 48 hours since the snow stopped swirling and our local road crews are still at it, still behind the wheel of their plows, still trying to push all of that snow out of the way so we can drive our cars to work, to school, to the grocery store.
Maybe it took longer than you wanted to get out of your driveway, or maybe you got out right away. Or, maybe you're still stuck.
Either way, let's spend a minute thanking all of the Durham and Middlefield road crews who worked through the weekend, in the worst circumstances, to clear a path for us.
