Columbia, S.C. (WOLO) — Operations in the Midlands and Upstate have been hampered because roads and highways have been impassible, limiting the number of employees who were able to get to work and impacting the postal service’s ability to move mail between facilities.

“You can’t walk at your normal gait,” he said on his normal foot-route in the Shandon area. “You gotta move real careful as you’re walking. The footing’s worse on people’s steps.”
