This hasn’t been the worst winter.
But it hasn’t been the best. We’ve had several snowfalls, with a decent number of inches.
Each time, we’ve been out and about quickly.
Thanks to our plow guys.
Some work for the state Department of Transportation, or Westport Public Works. Others are private — employed by landscaping or other companies, or completely on their own.
All are crucial.
We seldom see them. We’re inside, drinking cocoa. Or asleep.
There’s a real art to clearing roads and driveways, efficiently and quickly. I can’t imagine what a mess I’d make if I tried. Very quickly, I’d need to be plowed out myself.
We never know how much we need our plow guys, until we do.
Thanks to all, for all you do, for all of us.
I just hope we don’t see you again until 2022.
