Wednesday, I awoke dreading another day stuck in the house. Imagine my surprise when I walked up to my street, Cool Springs Road, and found it dry as a bone. The first morning of the snow it had been plowed and graveled, but I never imagined it would be clear so soon when it was so cold.
Like my contemporaries, I was surprised at the house cleaning of top management in Hall County last week. Given the quick response to a basic service of county government, I now think that action was responsible governance.
Way to go, Hall County government! I never thought I would hear myself say that.
