Think your sidewalks are icy? Try being a Morristown firefighter today


The walk to Morristown town hall this morning was like ice skating minus the skates. So imagine the fun that Firefighter Sean McDonough must have had climbing a ladder to clear off the town hall roof.

Firefighter Stuart Williamson kept an eye on things from below. Had Sean drawn the short straw?

“He’s the junior guy,” Stu said with a grin.

A winter storm warning remains in effect through 4 pm; more freezing rain or drizzle is predicted.
