Post Office May Have Met Its Match in Atlanta

According to the Associated Press, "The U.S. Post Office may have met its match with Atlanta's ice storm."

Spokesman Michael Miles is quoted in the short dispatch as saying, "... the post office can handle rain, snow, sleet and hail, but ice is a different matter." He said mail delivery is restricted to few places around metro Atlanta because "for many just getting to work has been virtually impossible."

Miles indicated that the problem right now is that it's "very dangerous out there because of the ice."

A winter storm that dumped as much as seven inches of snow around parts of metro Atlanta has left the city's streets a treacherous mix of snow, slush and ice. FEDEX and UPS have also temporarily ceased operations because of the weather.
