Bill Troutwine: Understands being snowed it, overdosing on CM

He understands how it affects the mind and the feeling of being neglected that can set in under these circumstances, but thinks everyone ought to understand the enormous challenges facing our road crews and be thankful. 'To our road crew I say, thank you guys. I think you are doing great. I appreciate the job you are doing!' - he writes

By Bill Troutwine

I know I have been writing a lot the last two days, but I feel I must speak up here. I guess that is what happens when you are snowed in and spend your time reading Columbia Magazine.

For those of you who are criticizing the road crews, I understand how you feel, because no one likes being isolated from the rest of the community, but consider how you are making the road crews feel. They have been on the go for 30 or more hours with very little rest doing the very best they can, then to receive nothing but criticism after putting out so much effort is very discouraging. I know from personal experience how hard it is to open roads again after a thick layer of ice. Snow will plow easily, but not ice, it sticks to the road surface like concrete.

Lets give our road crew a break and be thankful they are on the job and doing the best they can. After all this was a storm far from what normally occurs in Kentucky.

To our road crew I say, thank you guys. I think you are doing great. I appreciate the job you are doing! --Bill Troutwine Comments re article 65742 Kathryn Miller Stuck on Melson Ridge and unhappy about it
