Raves for U.S. Postal Service | Letter

Thanks for the passionate service you and your crew delivered last week. I fully understood why no mail was coming on Feb. 4 — hardly anyone made it out to our somewhat remote area. However, since Feb. 5, we received the mail again. We thank your associates for this extraordinary service.

This is in contrast to the situation a few years ago where the mail was a no show for a full winter week, while all other service providers (garbage, parcel service etc.) showed up. Obviously you have improved your performance in winter weather. I am happy to see that you live in line with the postal motto: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

Like the rant last time, I share the praise today with the city and the Reporter. You can show your resilience probably soon with two more major winter storms announced for this week.
