There may not be any snow on the ground right now
but that doesn't mean snow plow drivers can't be given
a 'thank you' today.
It's Snow Plow Driver Appreciation Day in Wisconsin
and to mark the occasion .
the city of La Crosse held an appreciation breakfast
City officials say even though it's been a late start
to snow plowing season the past couple years .
the drivers still appreciate being recognized for
their hard work to keep roads clear.
These people do a very difficult job.
It's very stressful, and it's nice to get feedback
because usually the feedback isn't the greatest.
People don't like having their driveways plowed in,
and in general, snow is a nuisance.
City officials say once the snow does start falling
it's best to be patient when plows are on the road
and give the trucks plenty of space to do their jobs.
