A Thank You to city street sweepers

This morning, as I rode in to work on New Year's Eve day, I saw a City of Springfield street sweeper cleaning one of the streets on my normal commute. 8:15 am on Outer Park Drive - a lot of the rest of the city was off work and not traveling, and this guy was out working, sweeping up road glass and other debris, making my commute more liveable.

Thank you.

I agree with you, except that here -- right now -- all that road debris is under a solid sheet of ice.
