Cold days and Warm hearts

What a lonely site this mailbox can be on Valentine's Day. Luckily for me I found a sweet and hand delivered Valentine from my favorite man on the kitchen counter after he shoveled the drifting snow from the driveway and sidewalks again this morning.

For others in our neighborhood I hope they have some one that hand delivers as well. Seems the postal service here had the option of "to deliver or not" yesterday and it looks to be the same here again today.

As you can see the road looks somewhat passable, but our mailman who is probably the least liked by me doesn't deliver when there is anything that may potential or even remotely looks like an obstacle from a mile away (I'm really not exaggerating too much). I have no idea why he took a job he so clearly doesn't like or doesn't do most of the time. We have only lived here a little over a year, but in that time he has found every reason possible not to deliver the mail.

Anyway, although it may be a bitter cold day and for the rest of this week, my heart warms at the thought of spending time with my husband and wee one this evening. The only thing that could make this day any better would have been to have the last Harry Potter book to read on a day like this instead of waiting until the hot days of July.

Apparently, it is no longer in practice. Today was day 4 of no mail delivery. Even though the delivery truck can make it through the neighborhood and too most of the boxes they still haven't even entered the neighborhood to try. I called the post office today and they gave me the run around and even when I offered to just drive over and get our mail they hem hawed about it may or may not be available.

Well at least the important stuff was waiting for you on the kitchen counter! How great is that?!!

Wow, four days without delivery, that should cause the carrier even more problems when a delivery is finally made. Apparently, the unofficial motto, of the US Post Office, "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.” is not in effect in your subdivision.
