Area snow plow operators should get standing ovation

Published 10:22am Thursday, March 28, 2013 Updated 12:24pm Thursday, March 28, 2013

We should give all our snow plow drivers a standing ovation for the great job they have done this season. this includes state, county, city and township drivers.

All you need to do is drive around to different areas and see how the roads are taken care of and what they have to put up with.

I get around the state and into the Dakotas and it is dangerous.

With this in mind we need to be patient with the fixing of the pot holes and the crews that will be fixing them.

What we all have to do is slow down and watch for them and be respectfull of other drivers. Until we get through the thaw-freeze cycle so they can be repaired.

We have the best crews by far around here.
