Remember to Shovel Out Your Mailbox

It snowed about 6 inches last night. Please remember when shoveling out your cars, driveways and walks, that your mailbox should be shoveled out as well. Today I noticed a lot of people had plowed or used their snowblowers on their driveways, but failed to cross the road and clear their mailbox. The PennDOT trucks plow a lot of snow right in the path of your mailman, please help clear this so he can deliver your mail without getting stuck or getting out of his vehicle.

Just because he hasn't, and won't, say anything to you about the pile of snow in front of your mailbox, doesn't mean that you shouldn't be courteous and clear a path. After all, according to the postal regulations, he doesn't have to deliver your mail if your mailbox is not accessible. Please be kind, shovel, it will take you only two minutes of your time.
