A Round of Applause, Please

News Staff's picture

Although Puxatawney Phil has promised us an early spring, it seems every week has been bringing us wintry “mixes” that are neither snow nor rain, but a nasty mixture that delivers the worst of both worlds. On top of that, we saw high winds in town on Sunday and Monday that brought down trees and caused power outages. And as we went to press, a round of snow was set to fall on Wednesday, February 26, and another “wintry mix” was forecast for this weekend.

Most of us are able to sit inside and stay warm and safe while the snow and sleet fall and the winds blow; but there’s a contingent of township employees who do not have that luxury. The folks in the Department of Public Works (DPW) who are responsible for plowing our streets and shoveling municipal walks as well as clearing the parking lots at the schools and the township buildings, are outside in foul winter weather both day and night, working to make our streets and sidewalks safe for travel.
