Snow Did Not Affect Valentine's Day Deliveries

Several schools and businesses were closed on Wednesday because of weather, so some people got the Valentine's Day off to relax.

Relaxation was not an option for those who deliver flowers for a living. One man was spreading love all over while shuffling through the snow.

There is one thing known for sure about life, and that is you can not stop time. It just keeps going.

The same could be said for those who work at Charlottesville's Flower Man Shop.

"The majority of our deliveries had already been completed on Monday and Tuesday, so we have very few to take care of today. Therefore, we've been taking care of a lot of people walking in the door today," said Jim Plummer of Charlottesville's Flower Man Shop.

Cupid pushed the non-stop action onto Kenny Morris as well.

Morris is a driver who made several deliveries at Lake Monticello. Despite sloshing through the snow, he said he enjoys his job delivering flowers.

"You see the sparkle in the people's eyes when you hand them the bouquet of flowers, and the smiles on their face. It just gives you a real good feeling to make people happy like that," said Kenny Morris who delivers flowers for Charlottesville's Flower Man Shop.

Kenny Morris continued to feel good after dropping off flowers at home, after home, after home. Walking through the snow may have caused a slight delay with deliveries, but it was a challenge Kenny Morris could deal with.

"The snow was really challenging today, but it was nice. We had a job to do, and we got it done, and the people were happy. So, that is what it's about," added Morris.

Charlottesville's Flower Man Shop made about 300 deliveries on Valentine' Day.
