RANT AND RAVE Rant to the three sets of people who walked by my 80-year-old mom who had slipped on the ice on the parking lot at the Kirkland Costco. She was lying on her back and not one of those people asked if she was OK or needed help. Seriously? Rave to the Costco employees (pharmacy worker and store manager) who treated her with kindness and compassion once she got inside the store. Thankfully, she was not seriously injured and only ended up with some bad bruises.

RANT AND RAVE Rant to drivers who felt the need to speed down our hill while it was snowing and be so careless and disrespectful to others driving slower for safety.  Rave to our wonderful maintenance crew and neighbors, who braved the ice and snow to help people, some elderly, who were trying to get out of our parking lot to make it to the grocery store. You made our small community proud.
