This Week’s Good News!

Posted on Updated on

The first Good News Story of March is something I personally witnessed. The greater Seattle area of Washington State experienced a Snowmageddon of sorts the beginning of February resulting in many places, including my neighborhood, receiving two feet or more of snow. One thing we’ve learned living in this neighborhood is that if even 1/4 of an inch of snow falls, our Waste Management service ceases, so much so that we just went three entire weeks without garbage and recycling service because the company’s policy is to protect their drivers from snow and ice incidents in their vehicles.

I get that, but those super heavy vehicles were no match for the rinky dinky mail carrier truck that made it to our mailbox every day of Snowmageddon, not missing a day of mail delivery service. I witnessed our mail carrier (a slightly older gentleman) climb over snow berms in front of neighborhood mailboxes and I also saw him park his truck at a cul-de-sac he couldn’t drive into, haul the mail for those mailboxes on that closed off street, and deliver each and every piece of mail to those residents.

Good News delivered by a dedicated postal carrier. Isn’t that grand?

    That’s great that you got your mail everyday. The same thing happens here with mail and trash during bad weather. Our trash guys never come when it snows. But the mail is pretty consistent!

      Isn’t it interesting that mail delivery is consistent? I find comfort in the company of those whose trash collection services wimp out as ours do.

    Our garbage collection is the same way, Irene. But our mail service and paper delivery never fails! I hope your mail carrier gets a little bonus for going above and beyond. 🙂

      I gave him a thank you card but that’s not putting $ in his bank account. I will contact the distribution center and share my appreciation.
