Unplowed residential streets are hampering delivery of the Lawrence Journal-World to some customers this morning.
Mike Countryman, the newspaper's director of circulation, said an undetermined number of customers had been unable to get today's paper in the aftermath of the storm. But he said carriers would keep trying through the day to get through the snow to deliver the news.
"We are out there delivering," Countryman said.
While most main and secondary streets are passable, Countryman said many neighborhood residential roads had not yet been cleared, making it difficult for carriers to get to customers' homes.
He said almost all carriers were able to get out and pick up their papers for delivery, though carriers serving Lecompton and Tonganoxie were unable to get out of their own driveways this morning, and that carriers without four-wheel-drive vehicles were at a disadvantage in getting through their delivery routes. He said he hoped the delivery situation would improve as the day goes on, more roads get plowed and the sun melts some of the snow.
"We appreciate (customers') patience and hopefully we'll be back to normal tomorrow," Countryman said.
