    Oh but of course. Just keep the mailbox out by the road free and clear, lest you incur a nastygram from the post office telling you there's too much of the white stuff in front of the box for the mailman to make a safe dropoff.

    (Our box hangs from the side of the street and a fairly busy one as its a main drag. There's no sidewalks and the houses are spread far apart so the mailman drives from box to box with a RHD Lark with a blinkin light and sign, or whatever the vehicle is and drops the mail in the box. On the same note I gotta curse the IDOT plow driver as I swear he seems to take pleasure in trying to take that box off every snowfall from its post.)

                Too bad about your mail service- must be lower standards than here.

                A week ago Monday I awoke to snow above my waist. Brushed off my van and went to work, and delivered my route. Last February we had 3 feet on the ground from mid-January, when we got that big storm- 15 feet in 6 days! I delivered my route EVERY DAY (as much as I could access). Not a big deal here.

                My delivery vehicle is a 99 Plymouth Grand Voyager with AWD, just turned 246K miles. With 4 snow tires it goes through anything- and has to sometimes!

                Amazing how many people, even in these conditions, whine about having to clear their mailbox approach; never bothering to realize that the mail carrier has 5-600 boxes to serve, and we do- every day- snow or not!

                    LOL! Any complaints from me about the snow are tounge in cheek. Really, I moved back here to return to it. Nevertheless, when I was a child, Bams, we had about the same conditions you describe there in... upstate New York, is it? So, this is a piece of cake.

                    With that in mind though, George's Landie still got stuck on the driveway today. LOL, the poor old girl just simply couldn't deal with the depth of the snow and the ice. In the end, with a bit of digging and some artful driving on George's part we got back up to the house. I just don't see Bess getting down the driveway for a few days though if Matilda is having trouble.

                                Here in Yuma we are complaining about the chilly mid 60's highs which are well above our average of 72. Hopefully, it warm up soon.
