The Orange Highway Department was ready for the storm, carefully watching the weather coverage and anticipating its arrival and severity of the storm once it hit.
Once again, while we slept, the town employees and contractors were out and about doing their best to stay ahead of the storm and keep the roads clear and safe for traffic.
On Thursday, Dec. 17, Highway Crew Chief Donny Foyer said, “It was a long night. Crews came in at 6 p.m. and plowed through the night into morning and early afternoon. Contractors scheduled for midnight worked until noon. Crews are home for a well-deserved rest.”
So the next time it snows and you are out there shoveling and cursing the snowplow driver for blocking your driveway, remember how hard they work for 12 hours during the heart of the storm so you can safely drive on the roads after you get out of your driveway.
Thank You Orange Highway, you guys do a much better job than crews in some surrounding towns. Your skill and dedication are appreciated.
