Thousands in Knoxville still without milk and bread after snowstorm
As of 10:00 p.m. Saturday, approximately 3,000 Knoxville residents remained without milk or bread following Thursday's winter storm that left about 29,000 residents near starvation. The City of Knoxville's emergency milk and bread task force anticipates that most Knoxvillians will have proper nutrition restored by midday Sunday. "I'm so hungry," said North Knoxville homeowner Darrell Wainwright, who lost milk and bread Thursday during the storm. "Why didn't I go to the grocery store on Wednesday like a normal person? Last night I started eating a copy of 'Moby Dick' just to have something in my stomach." Emergency crews have been working 24 hours a day since Thursday to restore milk and bread to the city. "The main concern is French toast," said Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero. "Without milk and bread you can't make French toast. But we expect the rest of our residents to have sustenance soon. Hang in there, Knoxville."
