With the cold plus snow and ice, the U.S. Postal Service is asking customers to clear snow and ice from sidewalks, stairs and mailboxes, to help letter carriers deliver the mail.
Customers receiving door delivery should make sure their sidewalks, steps and porches are clear, according to the postal service. Customers receiving curbside delivery should remove snow piles left by snow plows to keep access to their mailboxes clear for letter carriers.
