The winter time ushers in many things that people enjoy. Families join together to put up Christmas trees, eat family dinners, drink hot chocolate, and much more. It is a unique time of year that also welcomes the SNOW! Kids love it because they get a snow day away from school to sleigh around on tubes and car hoods, have snowball fights, and build snowmen.
But the snow also presents many challenges. For those who are forced to brave the terrible traveling conditions that snow brings, the snow isn't such a good thing. Last night, I was snowed in at my parents and had to drive my fiancé to work at a daycare in Columbia. I was impressed with how well the roads were in Casey County. Even my parents' side road was plowed as soon as the main roads were cleared. As soon as I hit the Russell County line, snow covered the main highways, including 127. Adair County roads were not any better.
On many snowy occasions, I have drove through several of the surrounding counties and every time, Casey County's roads are always in the best condition. I want to acknowledge our diligent road crew workers for the work they do. They do an outstanding job and deserve all the recognition and appreciation we can give them. Considering the fact that Casey is one of the 20 largest counties in the state (by area), they do great work. Thank you all!
