The after-snow

To those who haven't yet seen the bare ground, or parking stripes, I ask you to enjoy our sunshine that blessed us yesterday with much melting.

I also send out a big cheer for all those who were awake in the night (many times in many places) plowing the roads while more snow was falling.

But my biggest appreciation is for the garbage collecting teams.  I read this week that they are at higher risk than policemen for injury on the job.  No kidding.

Did you ever hear of a kid wanting to grow up and be a garbage collector?
The unsung heroes of our lives.


  1. We have seen the parking stripes but the ground is still heavily covered with snow. Thank goodness for the 40s on Thursday.

  2. We had a garbage collector in our town who had two boys in our school. They were genius level guys who grew up to be great inventors. I am betting the garbage man was pretty smart but didn't want to do much with it.


Hi, I'm glad to publish your comments. Let's keep it civil, shall we?
