    Any idea when mail service will start up again? 98136 and haven’t received any mail since Christmas Eve…

      The mail outages are spotty … we’ve had mail most days … anyway, USPS has not made an official statement. Still trying to get them to comment.

          lol…I know we all want that motto to be so true! That motto/policy you referenced was written by Herodotus during the Persian Wars (499-479 BCE) about another set of postal workers…and here we go again with more snow & freezing temperatures…can we just fast forward to April?

    I’m not sure if the snowman is showing off the Seattle skyline or saying “So whaddya gonna do?” And that’s a question that applies to so many situations.

Sorry, comment time is over.
