Heroes of the Highway
I used this photo in a blog I did in December after a wicked snowstorm and a 'wicked' drive home the next morning from work.
I am amazed at how hard our county highway works and exactly how 'little' we appreciate them, so on a whim this past week, I wrote the following letter to the editor of the Vernon County Broadcaster which is our local 'rag'.
County Highway Workers Deserve Praise
So I had two phone messages when I got in from helping Rich do chores this morning. One from a fellow guard who is the wife of a county worker, and another from one of our neighbor [as the crow flies ~~ about 3 county miles].
The message was simple.
'Thank you so much for appreciating us.'
Well my Heroes of the Highway, you are very welcome indeed.
