Officer Thomas McCall

MORGANTON, N.C. — A prison officer in Morganton was so dedicated to getting to work in the snow Thursday, he rode to work on a lawn mower.

It was a two-hour journey, through inclement weather, snow packed roads and a stop to re-fill the mower with fuel.

According to WSOC, the gatehouse staff told prison managers that Officer Thomas McCall arrived to work on a lawn mower.

Knowing the weather conditions and the importance of adequate staff to provide appropriate custody and security of the prison, McCall realized that the only way to get to work was to ride his mower from Valdese to Morganton.

Thankfully he arrived safely and in extremely good spirits, according to officials.
