Thumbs-up to utility workers who often find themselves working in all kinds of weather to help restore electricity following storms. That was the case last month when a series of severe thunderstorms and tornadoes roared through the Hoosier state. We appreciate their hard work and efforts to restore order in our lives when storms bring havoc into them.
