City residents coping well with winter weather

Kudos and great gratitude to all the fine folks who snap into action, helping those around them, as we struggle to make our way through the snowy streets! Such an outpouring of support as drivers stop and climb out into the snowbanks to help get fellow motorists moving again.

It’s a real treat. And a tip of the hat to our city crews, for whom a storm like this must be a worst nightmare.

Special kudos to Patty, the Servus Credit Union employee (South Hill) recently seen leaving the branch in her shirt-sleeves in a sudden snowstorm to make sure an older client made it across the parking lot OK, then stayed to not only help her into her car, but then cleared her windows for her as well. How amazing and lovely.

Finally, dismay and raised eyebrows for the fellow Nylons concert-goer tonight who not only ignored the MC’s opening reminder to all to “Turn off your electronic devices, folks,” not only declined to silence the thing but — astonishingly — answered the calls! You heard me right: not once, but twice!

Woman, what were you thinking? This woman has surely enjoyed sufficient years and life experience to know better. All around were left shaking their heads at her oversized and inappropriate sense of entitlement.
