A round of applause must go out to the bus drivers of Hollidaysburg Area School District and for all those who make a living in the fine field of transportation.
The last couple of weeks have been rough on all of us, but nothing comes close to the responsibility and pressure that a professional driver must carry on his or her back.
As a parent and a former transportation specialist, I gently remind all of us that Mother Nature does not recognize any type of calendar or anyone's schedule.
She could care less about a couple hours here or there. She is a force that none of us has any control over, no matter how good our four-wheel drive handles in the snow.
So, why fight it with our most valuable resource - our drivers? Just give in.
What is the worst thing that could possibly happen? Another cup of coffee? A breakfast shared? We have no power or influence.
Make-up days, canceled appointments, delayed flights, missed opportunities and cabin fever are all side effects of the weather. Stay put. Stay safe. Embrace the elements.
