The new year is a time for counting blessings.
In these snow days, when schools are canceled, the deep freeze prompts cancellations of events far and wide.
Even snow plows are pulled off the roadways because conditions are so horrid.
We residents are confined to shuttered homes.
At times like these, I am reminded of how lucky we are to be served by a very good daily newspaper.
Despite the horrid conditions, our Watertown Daily Times carrier has delivered our paper to our door each day, and we are able to read the daily news in the comfort of a warm home over morning coffee.
