Mail carriers braving the snow

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - Normally local mail carriers have to worry about rain or heat but this week they're battling the ice and snow.

However, some people are looking out for their mail carriers and giving them warm drinks.


It's something postal workers say they appreciate.

"I've been having to watch my step and all, but customers have been real polite and the roads have been kind of safe," said postal worker John Barnes. "Just had to take my time and be careful whether driving or walking up and down the street and on the steps. But it's a neat snow day, a neat way to deliver mail. Don't get to do this very often so, just trying to get out and enjoy it while I can and think about positive things, too. Summer will be here before we know it and we will be wishing that it was snowing again."
