Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night…

So I realize it’s not really the post office motto, but… I didn’t think twice when we didn’t receive mail for more than a week. The weather was bad; I had low expectations. That’s why I was really disappointed to get this notice in the mail from our local post office:

They didn’t apologize for the lack of delivery nor did they explain the ridiculously tall mounds of snow at the entrance and exits of the local post office parking lot causing loads of problems for folks driving.

Admittedly, our house definitely falls under the “no” variety. In fact, they could have taken a photo of our mailbox of what not to do.

Our choice for the weekend? Dig out more or wait until spring for mail delivery. We went for the shovel.
