Whatever Happened To.....

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

Isn't that the unofficial motto of the U. S. Postal Service?

We haven't received mail since last year!

Thursday we had a little snow, less than three inches. Friday was New Year's Day, a holiday. Yesterday we had light snow most of the day but not even enough to plow. Mostly it just blew around. Yet the mail hasn't been delivered since last Wednesday!

Hello? This is New England, people! I can't believe it's the weather. They won't deliver if they can't drive right up to it but the mailbox is totally accessible.

I don't know why I even care. I'm not expecting anything except maybe a late Christmas card. I pay most of our bills online now. So why do I miss getting the mail so much?

It's just something I have always looked forward to. Somebody is thinking of me.

I guess I need to get over that. Later. Tomorrow I'm calling the post office. I want my mail!

That's the first time I've ever heard of the mail not being delivered. We get our mail no matter what.. unless we don't clear a path to the mailbox.

There is no reason you shouldn't be getting your mail.
