BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Postal workers and pizza delivery driver are some of the few people you'll find on the road during a state of emergency.

"I'm a mail man. I'm a letter carrier. I see a box (and) I want to put mail in it," Keith Puchalski, a mailman for USPS, said.

He has about 600 addresses on his route. He said he will try to get to every house despite the blizzard. However, his boss did tell him to try to end his day early if he could.

"I have some elderly people. They have medicine that they depend on, and sometimes I'm the only person they will see for the whole week," Puchalski said.

Pizza delivery drivers were also out in the cold bringing Pizza's to homes and offices.

"Some people can't get out in the storm, so they can't go grocery shopping to feed their families, and this is the next best option," Jimmy Hartl, a La Nova pizza employee, said.
