In like a lion, out like a lamb

We can only hope that old adage holds true. The City of Laurel,

along with most of the state, got dumped on. It’s difficult to tell

how much snow we got because our street maintenance crew began sanding, plowing and dumping it right away. Thanks to them our streets are drivable. Livingston had to close schools last Wednesday because the buses were buried and parents couldn’t get out of their driveways, and if they did, they got stuck in the street. After trying to drive on Livingston’s almost impassable roads, I was surprised Laurel’s Mayor Tom Nelson declared a snow emergency. But, it showed foresight and thoughtfulness in the event the crews have to work overtime.

In Laurel, thankfully, seniors are still able to get their daily meals delivered and we’re getting our mail. That wasn’t the case in Livingston last week. With the bitter cold sticking around some folks may face emergency situations. I’m glad to know Laurel is taking care of its residents.
