B-r-raving The Elements. "Grin and bear it" seems to be the motto of newsstand operator Alan Sheperd and gas station owner Herbert (Bud) Twining Jr. as they brave near-zero temperatures to serve their customers. They are typical of many workers who follow in the footsteps of mailmen when frigid air, snow, sleet and rain make working in the great outdoors far from great. Continued cold weather is forecast for the weekend.
