Winter Weather Letters

Live anywhere in the northern half of the United States and it's likely you have to deal with snowy conditions throughout the winter.  Perhaps one of the most under-appreciated jobs is that of the roads crews who endure countless sleepless nights making the roads safe to drive the following morning.  Marilyn Rippy - STC Elementary Music Teacher - came up with an idea of having her Kindergarten and 1st grade students write "Thank You" cards and then asked if I would make hand-deliveries to local and regional crews.  I thought this was an outstanding idea and carved out some time in the morning to make a number of visits.  Everyone who received the cards (along with boxes of donuts, of course!) was highly appreciative of the thoughtful gesture.
