There were several extended stretches this winter in which the temperature remained below zero for days at a time. Nearly two full weeks of school was postponed by some local school corporations because of the snow and cold. There were also a handful of other days when schools operated on two-hour delays because of the weather.
Street departments burned through their annual allotment of overtime before the end of January. Drive on some of our county roads and you run the risk of falling in … literally. Pot holes the size of Volkswagens lurk around almost any turn.
We concede to you cruel winter of 2013-14, or tap out, cry uncle, beg for mercy, whatever. You win. Now leave already so we can all get on with our lives and talk about something else for a change.
