KINGS COUNTY, NS – It may be a day early for Valentine's Day, but Kings County residents are sending love notes to plow drivers in the region.

As a storm sweeps through Nova Scotia, dumping up to 45 centimetres of snow blown about by high wins and cancelling schools and closing businesses across the Valley, Kings County residents sent their thanks to the people who have no choice but to be on the roads in the weather conditions: the plow drivers.

On a Facebook post by KingsCountyNews.ca, 20 people sent their appreciation in less than an hour.
