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 in your mailbox today (that is, if you can even make it to your mailbox, with all this snow).

The answer is No. Mail service in all of New England — not just Massachusetts — has been suspended, according to the Huffington Post.

The ban extends throughout all six New England states. The unusual decision was made due to safety concerns, according to Postal Service spokeswoman Christine Dugas.

The decision came after over two feet of snow falling throughout much of New England made 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.

Thank you, glad to hear officials made that call.

An inscription on the James Farley Post Office in New York City reads: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." I guess that doesn't apply to Massachusetts.

I seem to remember a children's son along those lines, too. But It's worth noting that this was not a Massachusetts thing -- the mail service suspension extended to all of New England.
