For Plow Workers, Thank Yous Out of Frustrations

While locals were not pleased that roads took so long to get plowed, few faulted the workers pulling 14-hour shifts to get the snow cleared.

It may have taken days for Kings Park roads to be plowed, with officials citing equipment problems, unusually high snow totals and road icing as reasons for the delay.

But while frustrations with town leadership ran high, most members of the community wanted to thank the workers who were indeed out on the roads plowing for hours and hours. See some of their comments from our Facebook page below. Also if you want to thank anyone who helped you in the storm, maybe a neighbor who helped shovel you out, please leave them in the comments below.

  • Jackie Riter- Nelson I know you worked hard to get the job done !Thank you !
  • Christine Schmidt Rome We were plowed very early after the storm and today you plowed a big boulder of snow into my driveway and as I started to brake it up with my shovel and you came with the bulldozer and took away for me. Thank you

Why so much anonymity ? I'd like to know the names of our neighbors.....agreed that we see so much pleasant comments from so many anonymous contributors....why the "nicknames".....I don't understand.

I agree. The nicknames are childish & show cowardice. I have nothing to hide...

The internet is unique in that it offers complete anonymity for people. It is both a marvelous pro and a terrible con of the new information age. If people wish to display there identities on the internet so people know who they are, kudos to them. However I wouldn't hold a grudge against someone who wishes to keep their real name a secret.

Either way it is nice to show appreciation. Letting someone know that their hard work is appreciated can go a long way.
