For the umpteenth time that evening, Peggy donned her thick heavy jacket and went out into the blistering cold to de-ice the window. The fierce winds made the task all but impossible. As hard as it was, it paled in comparison to what her husband must be dealing with out on the highways. She could hope and pray people would have the common sense to stay home on such a miserable day and that her husband would arrive home safe.
“Honey,” Greg called out to hus wife as he removed his service revolver, carefully putting it away.
This short story is in memory of all the highway patrolmen that daily, good weather and bad, patrol our highways keeping them safe…. Remember, Drive Safe out there!
