Cold Doesn't Stop Sunrise Delivery

Posted: Updated:

Many people are happy about the warm up today, but our nights are still very cold.

Sunrise Home Delivery drivers have to work in those conditions, and drive around in a refrigerated truck.

But that doesn't slow down them down.

When the roads are empty and Bismarck goes quiet, things are just picking up for Tim Bosch.

"If you stop you get cold and then you're done so pretty much when you start you gotta let 'er rip," he said.

After 8 years on the job, below zero temperatures are nothing to Tim.

"I started out with this coat on and then I got a vest, a sweater, another sweater and a t-shirt," he said.

Tim delivers to around 100 houses a night, 4 nights a week, and everyone on his route is happy to see him.

"He's always on top of everything. If I need something he'll knock on the door and ask me a question or something. He's really good, heck of a nice guy," customer Roger Kubik said.

"We have everything pretty much. All the dairy products, we got eggs, bagels, bread, bacon, all the cloverdale products, ham patties," Bosch said.

You name it, they've got it, and Tim will deliver, no matter the weather.

"It's just a fun job to do. You get your exercise and make a little money on the side," he said.

By 7a.m. all of the groceries are perfectly placed by a man who won't let anything, not even Mother Nature, slow him down.

Bosch says if the cold gets to the groceries before the customer does, they will bring a new one and take back the frozen product at no charge.
