A very rough weekend

To say it was a rough weekend for all of us here at the Daily Times is an understatement.

Firs the region got rocked by a bizarre October snow. The wet snow brought down trees – including one in my front yard – and cut power to thousands.

One of the victims was our new printing facility in Exton, Chester County. Power went out Saturday afternoon and was not restored until Sunday afternoon. We had to make alternate plans to print six daily newspapers at the Inquirer’s printing facility in Conshohocken.

The result was a delivery nightmare for the Sunday paper.

We did not get papers to our loyal home-delivery customers until late Sunday morning. We also were very late in getting the paper to our normal sales outlets, including Wawas.

We apologize for the aggravation this caused our readers and customers.

One thing you should know is that this was not the fault of your carrier.

It was the fault of Mother Nature.

Someone please tell me this was not an inkling of what is to come this winter.
