I’m in Maine today. A rare January visit for me.
Last week was a blizzard with zero temperatures. This week a driving rain with warmer temperatures which causes sludge and icing.
Reading and hearing reports, wet weather is everywhere and where it’s cold, it’s been very cold.
One of the many things I admire about our teams is your resilience against the elements. Whatever the circumstances, you rally to meet the demands of the customer. Watching the Maine team bear the circumstances today reminds me of our fortune to have such dedicated teams.
So, being conscious of the aggravation which comes with poor weather, can I offer my thanks and appreciation? I’m not around to do it personally, but I’d still like to make it known.
The professional way you approach your jobs in all sorts of circumstances sets us apart. My appreciation is boundless. I am grateful.
