Michael Kenney has been delivering newspapers for more than 20 years. Like a number of other Sun Herald carriers, the bad weather threw him for a loop this morning. Kenney says, "They were going to go to press at 8:30 last night and that didn't happen until 10 this morning. You just have to be careful out there." He was a little behind schedule, but managed to deliver newspapers to his 300 customers before mid-afternoon. Frozen bridges, ice, and road closings were an obstacle for him and other folks who had to drive to work. While his normal route looked much different today, these conditions him took him back down memory lane. Kenney also says, "Back in 1972, that's when I delivered on a bicycle. There was a lot of snow then. We've had a lot of cold days, but nothing like this. Not as slick, ice, and all that." While power outages haven't been a big problem so far in our area, Mississippi Power crews hit the streets to help our neighbors to the east. Keith Guillot, a Mississippi Power spokesman, says, "Fortunately, our system handled the weather very well, so we were able to send crews to Pensacola." While 6,000 customers are without power in Pensacola, things were heating up at the Harrison County Emergency Operations Center, both on the inside and out, as disaster workers took a little time to recharge and fill up. Rupert Lacy, the Harrison Co. Emergency Management Director, says, "Just to bring a little bit of normalcy, we are having grilled hamburgers for our staff working in here." While they all carry out a different form of public service through their work, all of these hard-working employees are looking forward to brighter and warmer days ahead.
