Will Mail Be Delivered Today?

The Saturday suspension of mail delivery debate applies to today: but not because of USPS budget problems!


Neither rain, not sleet...except for blizzards.

Chelmsford residents 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 that 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.

We forgot to take in the mail yesterday, so I just pretended it was delivered today!

That reminds me of a quote from the movie "The Gods Must Be Crazy." I don't remember the exact quote, but it was something like "before the beginning of civilization, every day was Tuesday or Wednesday."

Great movie! "Suddenly, everybody needed it most of the time."

Whenever I feel bad, I think of the guy in that movie screwing up at trying to impress the teacher for like 30 minutes of that movie and I think "I will never be that much of a doofus." I don't think it's possible for anybody to be more of a doofus than that guy.
