Coweta covered by ice and snow… and The Newnan Times-Herald

Today, you might be getting your paper a little later than you’re accustomed to.

Snow and ice in the South have been known to make headlines on occasion. We all see the havoc that comes from just mentioning the words “snow” or “ice.” (Bread and milk, anyone?)

Our job at The Newnan Times-Herald doesn’t end when snow and ice come into town. It gives us a lot more to do, from making sure the news gets covered, and ensuring its delivery to our readers.

With that in mind, sometimes we have to compromise with Mother Nature in order to put safety first. We’re working around the clock to make sure that everyone receives their paper, and we appreciate your patience while we avoid putting our carriers’ lives at risk.

For the next couple days, weather permitting, newspapers will arrive as early as possible. Just like school and road closures, this is a judgement call we have to make, and we always hope to err on the side of caution.

The news will still be available on our website 24 hours a day, as well as the digital edition, which is available each morning, from the safety of your home.

We will continue to provide all of our readers with accurate, up-to-date news as it happens.

Stay safe!
