Picture of the day: Neither snow, nor rain nor LDH keeps the post office from its appointed rounds.

Drummond Figg, fire and emergency services chief in Newport North Carolina, tells us this image is from a fire to wrap up 2010. Newport Fire Department’s Dale Wooten shot the picture on December 31 during a morning fire in a home at 2008 Watson Avenue. According to Chief Figg, despite two police cars, two ambulances, a rescue and three engines on the scene, this vehicle made it through.

The chief say it belongs to the local postal carrier who crossed the hose four times to deliver the mail. Firefighters were operating inside the home at the time. This caught the attention of Chief Figg and the police on the scene. It’s a $400 ticket. The chief also plans to send a bill for damage to three sections of LDH.
