A note of thanks to those that keep us safe during the storm and a day to remember the 'Challenger.'

Dear Road Crews (state and private) and those who help others during snowstorms like the Blizzard of 2015: thanks for all you do to keep us safe. We know you work endless hours to make sure the highways, secondary roads and the like are as clear as possible. Also, a big thank you to those folks who help their neighbors by shoveling driveways, stairs, etc, and making sure everyone is okay.
