Sioux Falls, SD, Letter Carrier Don Shea was busy delivering mail Nov. 30 when a photographer for the Argus Leader newspaper snapped his picture.
Shea usually doesn’t receive such attention while on his route, but Sioux Falls was in the midst of a record-setting winter storm.
The image of a dedicated letter carrier making his appointed rounds during a blizzard caught the attention of “CBS Evening News” anchor Scott Pelley, who included Shea in a Dec. 3 broadcast.
“I love it out here,” Shea says in the report. “You put it to the test — rain, sleet or snow — out here in South Dakota.”
