I wonder how many of us have thought to thank the Public Works Deptartment for the great job it does for us.

Its crews worked around the clock to clear the roads after the blizzard last month. They worked in shifts with just a few hours of sleep in between.

Their hard work allowed the Fire, Police and Emergency Medical Services departments to function as soon as possible. It didn't take long for the rest of us to get on with our daily routines.

So, thanks to the people with the plows and big trucks. Thanks for your hard work.
