Directing two tons of metal through treacherous conditions sounds like a nightmare for most, but for Andy Rankin, it’s just another day on the job.
Rankin sits behind the wheel of truck 38 as a four-year veteran of the Oldham County Road Department. This winter, he and the department have gone out to salt or plow five times to head off wintery conditions on county roads, Rankin said.
“It’s not a hard job, it’s just tedious,” Rankin said. “Your mind has to be in the game.”
