Be Thankful For The Snow Plow
If you are lucky enough to know what a snow plow is and to live in an area that has the pleasure of needing snow plows, then you have a lot to be thankul for. I suspect that many of you are doubting my sanity after making a statement like that, yet I believe it is true with all my heart. I believe that people should be thankful for the snow plow because I never had the privilege of living in a place that needed to use a snow plow at all.
You should be thankful for the snow plow simply because of what it is. There are many areas of the world where driving, transporting important goods and materials, and being able to enjoy life would be hindered without the presence of a snow plow. The workings of any society that gets snow in the winter happen only as the snow plow works. We often take simple things like a snow plow for granted, but just think about what the state of Minnesota would be like without them. How would highways, streets and airports function without snow plows? How would children get to school and people get to work? You see, a snow plow isn’t something to take for granted at all.
Think too of all the things that a snow plow represents. The need for a snow plow first and foremost represents the fact that there is snow in a particular area. People have very mixed feelings about snow. Some hate it, others love it. It will be hard to convince those who don’t enjoy snow to be thankful for it or for a snow plow. For those who love snow, however, it should be easy for them to be grateful for the snow plow.
Having snow in an area opens up many fun possibilities for the people of that area. Think of all the opportunities and the sheer beauty that snow brings. Many people cannot wait for the beginning of winter so that they can spend free hours outside hiking, skiing, or snowboarding in the snow. Others prefer to sit inside and gaze out at the beautiful way the snow covers the ground and the trees. No matter what it is that people love about winter, they should be overflowing with gratefulness for the snow plow because it enables them to get to the places that offer their favorite sports and activities.
So if you’re lucky enough to live where there is snow and therefore snow plows, be grateful. Your life would be a lot more complicated and a lot less fun if it weren’t for the activity of a snow plow.
