Just when I thought the US Postal service was done for it rallies like Rocky did in the moments that counted.
I opened my door to check the position on Hurricane Sandy, tree limbs, floods I’m interested in seeing the end of the world according to the news reporter who is being swayed around like a loose fire hose.
I notice something very interesting, is that mail in my mailbox? Yes, and in the mailbox comes a DVD I bought off Amazon weeks ago. I love when that happens, just when my day seemed to have amounted to nothing I get a package delivered to me that was unexpected. Even over night packages are fun to receive, although a little preplanned happiness.
All government departments have been closed since early this morning so how did I end up with mail. The bus and metro rails have shut down completely and will not be open tomorrow either. Wall Street has closed business for the day due to inclement weather, something that has not been done in 27 years. Schools are closed and everyone from offices around the beltway have called it in.
Amazing! The US Post Office in the spite of its bad reputation, lazy employees, and countless hours in their long lines; truly lived up to their creed: Rain or shine, snow or sleet, we deliver your mail! Ben Franklin had it right when he invented the Post Office, our citizens are 1st no matter the cause and today that was solidified in my mind.
Just as a good snow day can make way for old movies, music, books, magazines, all the things I can never find time to do I get the treat of watching a movie that I have not seen since I was a teenager. What luck of all days!
Now if only my power will stay on so I can watch it.
