U.S. Postal Service to deliver on Sunday because of snow

February 23, 2013

Snow has not totally stopped the U.S. mail, but it is forcing carriers into an unusual situation: Sunday deliveries.

Stuck between a backlog of mail caused by Thursday’s storm and an expected 10 to 12 inches of snow on Monday, the U.S. Postal Service will be making deliveries today in the Kansas City area, including in Lawrence and Leavenworth.

The press release stated that today was the best day for carriers to take advantage of clear streets.

The postal service asked that to help keep carriers safe customers “clear as much snow as possible from walkways, steps, porches and from around rural-type and cluster mailboxes.”

They were ONLY delivering packages yesterday. And they only had two people work yesterday. That is why NO ONE had mail delivered on Sunday. Ljworld was not specific about it but Fox 4 and KCTV5 were. I know this for a fact because my husband was one of the two who worked yesterday.
