Grateful for Snowplows

My car was covered with a thick layer of snow when I left the house early this morning. It was cold out, and dark, and I was tired. I was suddenly grateful, too, as I thought of the whole herd of folks who had been up through the night driving snowplows. "Yeah, that's their job," says some voice, and I suppose it's true... but that's no reason to dismiss the joy. I have been grateful all day for home, heat, electricity, and snowplows, for the infrastructure which supports all these and more, and for people whose work provides such comfort and security.
