“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
–unofficial credo of United States Postal Service.
There won’t be any mail carriers wearing shorts in the Twin Cities today.
If fact, there won’t be any mail delivery at all.
With local temps and wind chill plummeting to minus 29° below(!) and minus 60° below(!), respectively, all mail delivery has been cancelled.
I can’t recall that ever happening before . . .
P.S.: Realtors — not nearly as hardy as mail carriers — closed their offices in the Twin Cities early yesterday afternoon. 🙂
