Among the local heroes of the pre-Christmas winter storm “Elliott” was Brooksville mail carrier Tiffany Limeburner. According to the town’s postmaster, Sharon Clifford, Limeburner noticed that a generator was not running at the home of an elderly women to whom she delivers mail. Knowing that the resident lives alone, Limeburner started a chain of communication that resulted in the woman’s generator being back in business within 24 hours.
“It was the mail lady who noticed the generator wasn’t running. She got in touch with the fellow picking up the trash, who got in touch with me,” said Brooksville Fire Chief Matt Dow.
According to Dow, the tank had run out of gas and the woman, who he estimated to be in her mid-eighties, went just a single night without power.
