Weather creating delays in deliveriesPosted by Angela Howser on Monday, December 13th, 2010 @ 5:50 pm.
We apologize in advance of you even having to read this post.
We got out as early as we usually do today, but the drive down 130 was treacherous. It was 9 degrees when we left the house and there were ice patches all over 130 and hardly anyone out. So we made very bad time getting to the Browns house, then on to the print shop. We were delayed on that drive because there were a lot of wrecks on the highway we take to that location; law enforcement vehicles had traffic held up here and there so the overturned cars could be removed. So what’s ordinarily about a 2-hour trip ended up being over 3. One way.
So we were really late getting back, and Carol had already shut down at the post office. We forgot our dots anyway (the colored indicators for the top of the bundles that tell what kind of zip coding the PO needs to know, etc) so we’ll get those subs out in the morning.
The junior team left for a portion of NorthEast Counties (Wabash: Mt. Carmel and Allendale, and Edwards: Bruce Lee and West Salem Casey’s) at about 4, so they should have those deliveries about done. We are on the way to Olney now to get MotoMart, which is one of our largest vendors and requires specific stocking methods, so we handle that instead of the junior team.
All other deliveries will conclude tomorrow: We’ll be getting South Counties starting as soon as we drop off subs in the morning; the junior team with continue with NorthEast Counties and conclude with NorthWest and Central Counties. If for whatever reason they don’t get their route done tomorrow, they’ll pick up the rest Wednesday. But we can assure you all that South Counties will be completed hopefully by sundown tomorrow.
We’ll put up “This month’s print headlines” here in a bit; we’ve got some new and different stuff in this month’s print version; and starting tomorrow, we’ll put up a singular post so you’ll know where deliveries are complete
We apologize for no ‘print headlines’ post from last month’s paper, as well as no delivery schedule. Last month was a weird month, what with the baby and all. But that’s under control now and we’re back on track. Thanks for bearing with us!
