Our beautiful white Christmas was a dream come true for many people. Some of them couldn’t wait to get outside and enjoy the winter fun, while others simply spent the day with their family, in the cozy warmth of their home, admiring the peace and tranquility of the scene through their window.
I would like to make a gentle suggestion to everyone. No matter which option you choose, please take time to remember, and to thank, all the members of the Department of Transportation, law enforcement, emergency services, electric power crews, and others, who probably didn’t even get to see their families on Christmas day because they were so busy making the white wonderland safer for the rest of us. It is so easy to forget how much we depend on their efforts.
A sincere thank you to each of them.
