Unsung Heroes #87

Today’s Unsung Heroes might seem an unusual pick.

This winter has been remarkably snow-free (knocking on every piece of wood I can find — especially for tonight). We’ve been hit with only a few flakes — and scarcely seen a plow.

Westporters have a fraught relationship with our plow guys. We desperately need them, and a good, reliable one is solid gold.

But we pay a lot for their services. As much as we like them, we sure don’t want to see them.

A rare sight this winter.

Think of it from their perspectives, though. This has been a winter of lost wages.

So, for all the private plow guys: Hang in there. We hope you’re doing okay.

And for the town and state employees, who do amazing (and thankless) work in every storm too: We’re glad you worked on other projects this winter!
