Although Rockdale County Public Schools will be closed for a fourth day on Thursday and many businesses and offices were open on delayed hours today, the residents of Rockdale are slowly but surely getting out and back to work.
Here are a few scenes from around the county.
Pine Street Elementary custodian Leonard Doctor came in around noon to help clean and prepare classrooms for the eventual return of students. After being at home for several days, Doctor said he became a little restless. "I’m so used to working…When something of this nature pops up, you go kind of stir crazy staying at home."
USPS Mail Carrier Joyce Tindale delivered mail to the residents on Appaloosa Way on Wednesday, the first time mail delivery resumed since Sunday's snow and ice storm. In 11 years of delivering the mail, Tindale said this ice storm was the worst she had seen. While there were no streets on her route that she encoutered that were impassible, she said "I know what route I don’t want to go – Lake Capri going around those spurs down there."
Outside the Rockdale County Magistrate Court's office, Robert Singley, George Charles, and Charles Welch helped clear the pathways of ice and sand them down on Wednesday. Rockdale County government offices and courts returned to work on Wendnesday at 10 a.m.
