So appreciated

To the Editor:

We are in the middle of the second polar vortex of the winter and it’s [only early February]. It also seems to snow every other day.

I no longer have to deal with the elements, but I want to thank all of you who do it every day to serve us and keep us safe. The letter carriers, the firefighters, the EMTs, the police, the snowplow drivers and everyone else who spends their day outside in this weather for our benefit. Thanks. Just thanks.

You are so appreciated, and as I thank God for no longer having to do it, I also say a prayer for your safety. God bless.
