If you were optimistic enough Monday to think you could get a pizza delivered -- or any food delivered for that matter -- you probably were disappointed.
The snow and bitter cold -- not to mention local governments' orders to stay off the roads unless you really had business being there -- kept many restaurants as well as two food delivery services closed Monday.
Waiter on the Way, which delivers meals from local restaurants, was closed Monday. So was Homebound Meals, which delivers prepared meals to homebound people.
Calls to several pizza places went unanswered Monday. However, Papa John's pizza, 6233 Bluffton Road, opened at 11 a.m. Monday for carryout orders only. Assistant manager Brandy Trenary said business was slow Monday. It was a different story Sunday, however. As the snow piled up and the football games aired Papa John's was busier than employees had anticipated, she said.
The Papa John's at 5440 Coldwater Road planned to open around 6 p.m. Monday.
Oley's Pizza, 10910 U.S. 24 W., had a message on its phone saying it was closed Monday for the snow emergency but planned to open Tuesday at 11 a.m.
