When our area was for the most part shut down a few weeks ago due to the icy road conditions, we praised the public safety and public works staff who worked in the tough conditions even as the vast majority of the population went home and waited for things to get better.
As some of you pointed out, there were plenty of other people who also worked and endured during the ice storm. We heard stories of hospital staff working extremely long hours. When they did sleep, it was at the hospital.
Security officers, utility workers, radio, TV and newspaper staff and lots of others stayed on the job just like they always do. Our praise goes out to all of you, who step up during whatever emergency comes our way.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
