Snow doesn't slow some in EKY

HAZARD, Ky. (WYMT) On a day when most chose to stay inside, some folks still had a job to do.

Like Belinda Henson, who sells newspapers in rain, sleet, snow or sun shine.

“Most of my paper customers are regulars, so they come every week,” Henson said.

Other jobs are critical on days like today. People at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet work 16 hour shifts to make sure all 430 miles of state roads in Perry County are clear.

“We have certain trucks that stay on certain roads and they keep those roads clean all night long,” Sally Engle with the KTC said.

Engle says even though we didn’t get as much accumulation as we anticipated, you should still be aware of slick spots.

There were no reports of any major accidents in Perry County.
