Among his other duties over the course of the year, Joe is responsible for salting and plowing a part of town which includes my neighborhood of Absecon Shores. I ran into Joe early one morning recently, or rather he almost ran into me. I was walking my dogs in the pre-dawn hours through a driving snowstorm. Joe turned the corner in his truck and suddenly found me in his headlights. Fortunately, he was able to stop in time. He got out, and we had a good laugh about the impression he tried to make on the Mayor.
