Cold consequences: No mail delivery Wednesday in Dakotas, Minnesota
FARGO — The U.S. Postal Service has suspended mail delivery for Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota on Wednesday, Jan. 30, because of worsening weather conditions related to Polar Vortex Jayden.
Postal operations are also being suspended in Iowa, western Wisconsin and western Illinois. Retail operations at local offices will be available, but may be limited.
There will be no mail pickup from businesses or collection boxes. There also won't be residential or commercial package pick-up services.
The saying often tied to the U.S. Postal Service, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," does not necessarily apply to the dangerous wind chills expected Wednesday.
