Today was another day where we got to recognize special support for snowfall measurements with one of our partners. OPL James Bunker presented the PennDOT Monroe County office with a special service award for their efforts in relaying snowfall measurements during the winter season 2014-2015. They were great in relaying up to date readings from several locations around the Poconos. Thanks PennDOT Monroe County for your help! It was most appreciated and we look forward to working with you in the upcoming winter season 2015-2016. :)
