Roads Closed: No more mail from the Casper hub

"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds" - An inscription on the James Farley Post Office in New York City, referring to the courier service of the ancient Persian Empire. (Wyoming) - Well, almost. How about closed roads making mail delivery impossible. The closures westbound from Casper on Highway 20-26 and Northbound from Rawlins on 287-789 will mean mostly no new mail is coming into Park, Fremont and Hot Springs Counties today. "Some of the mail to the 825 zip code areas got through but the majority will be delivered once the roads re-open," said Postal spokesman for Wyoming David Rupert in Denver. "All of our local carriers did make a distribution with the mail that they had. We are delivering... it's just that some of the incoming mail didn't get through." "All the mail that got in BEFORE the highway closed, they're delivering. "We're delivering all the mail that's on hand. Customers...we ask that you think about delivery personnel ...clear sidewalks ... consider them" Feature Photo: A USPS delivery truck is chained up.
