Slick roads and sleet kept many people around Baldwin County at home Tuesday. But for Zippy Print owner, Paul Morris, it was just another day at the shop.

“Rain or shine, cold or hot, we’ve gotten some work done,” Morris said. “Haven’t had a whole lot of customers, but got a few things accomplished that we were working on.”

While Morris plugged away at the printing press, the Baldwin County commissioners were busy ironing out their plans for the rest of  the week.

“They did continue to make a motion to close the county’s buildings another day and reopen Thursday,” Charles Gruber, chairman of the Baldwin County Commission, said.

The call was made after commissioners and Emergency Management Agency officials got a briefing from the National Weather Service. The NWS said the most widespread rain would be seen between 2 and 6 p.m.

“That’ll probably transition into snow maybe more on the northern end. But all that ice will come in and will be present on our bridges or overpasses or roadways,” Mitchell Sims, director of Baldwin County EMA, said. “And that’s when conditions are really going to be dangerous for driving.”
