Survivors of last winter’s ice storm that devastated western Kentucky have already submitted hundreds of photos for a book The Paducah Sun and a power company plan to produce.
“Frozen in Time: A photographic look back at Ice Storm 2009” is expected to hit shelves in late January.
The book the newspaper is producing with Paducah Power System is accepting submissions from the westernmost Kentucky counties plus a handful in southern Illinois. The area the book will cover is bounded on the east by Crittenden, Caldwell and Trigg counties and includes those counties.
Officials for Paducah Power and the newspaper have said the book will help people remember the historic storm. Information on guidelines for submitting the photos and ordering the book is available on the newspaper’s Web site, http://www.paducahsun.com.
Kendra Payne, marketing director at the Sun, says the paper has already received 600 photos and has been “pleasingly overwhelmed with the response.”
