Madison (WKOW) -- from USPS: Don't let the "bad weather blues" immobilize you this winter -- at least not in areas where your Postal Letter Carrier delivers your mail.
Keeping your mailbox and walkways clear of snow and ice so that your letter carrier or other delivery person can safely approach your mailbox or door ensures that you receive the best service in the worst weather.
The Postal Service, which delivers to over 125 million addresses six days a week, has its hands full when winter storms hit.
"The challenge to provide uninterrupted delivery regardless of the conditions can be accomplished with a little help from our customers", said Madison Postmaster Paul Nistler.
Here's what you can do to help:
Postmaster Nistler added, "The men and women of the United States Postal Service want to deliver your mail on time daily. With a little help from the people they serve, this can happen even in the worst of every winter. Thank you for your help in clearing the way."
