Snow December 9, 2017


Yes--the first snowfall of the season today, Saturday, December 9, 2017. I just had to go outside and take a few photos to share. While I know many in the South have experienced heavy snowfalls from "Winter Storm Benji", here in south central Pennsylvania 1-3 inches has been forecast. The holly bush above is covered with the heavy wet snow.

My trip to the Post Office this morning was just before the snow started falling. I was expecting two packages, and the USPS tracking indicated the packages had arrived, but there was no mention of them being "available for pickup". After checking our PO Box and finding neither a yellow notification card or a parcel locker key, I went to the window to inquire. Our Post Office is rather small, and the clerk recognized me, smiled and said "Yes, you have packages". I could tell things were very busy and it reminded me to share Holiday shipping deadlines with everyone.

The 2017 Holiday Shipping Deadlines are:

First Class Mail   Tuesday,  December 19th

Priority Mail  Wednesday, December 20th

Priority Mail Express   Friday, December 22nd

Christmas Eve is on a Sunday this year, and Christmas Day is on Monday. Last day for mail delivery before Christmas is Saturday, December 23rd. Mail Early!
