Will Mail Be Delivered Today?

The Saturday suspension of mail delivery debate applies to today, but not because of USPS budget problems!

You may be wondering if there'll be any new mail arriving today (that is, if you can even make it to your mailbox with all this snow.)

The answer is that mail service in all of New England has been suspended, according to the Huffington Post.

The unusual decision was made due to safety concerns, according to U.S. Postal Service spokeswoman Christine Dugas.

The decision came after more than two feet of snow fell throughout much of New England, making many roads impassable, she said. Dugas reminded people to clear around their mailboxes or paths to their homes by Monday, when mail delivery will resume.

I've always like having mail delivery on Saturdays. Today's lack of it is a bit ironic. As a kid, I can remember that for maybe a week or two in December, we got mail TWICE A DAY AND ONCE ON SUNDAYS (during the Christmas 'rush'). Yeah, I know; it doesn't seem believable . . today. It was a different era . . and long ago.
