Jacob Westbrook, 23, shovels snow off the sidewalks in downtown Columbia on Sunday morning, Jan. 23, 2011. Westbrook has shoved snow off Columbia streets for three seasons. "This is the worst one I've worked," Westbook said. "It's colder, and there's a lot more snow." Westbrook began shoveling at 2am earlier in the week when the snow first arrived. "Once you get through the first snow, it's not so bad," he said.
Shakespeares Pizza parking lot attendant Bethany Bailey, 17, waits for customers to pick up their parking tags. Bailey arrived an hour before Shakespeares opened on a brisk Sunday morning to make sure non-customers did not park in the lot. To help stay warm, "I'll go inside every hour and stick my hands in the oven," she said.
