Postal Service says carriers are back but ask that snow and ice get cleared

The Postal Service says the mail's back for Iowa and much of the Midwest. But now they're asking their customers for help.

Saying that many mailboxes are snowed in, the US Postal Service asked Iowans to make sure that snow is cleared at least six feet on both sides of mailboxes that are on the curbline so that carriers can approach the mailbox without having to back up their vehicles.

In addition, they're asking people to please put sand or ice on slippery driveways, steps and porches to avoid falls. They also ask that there be a clear path shoveled to the mailbox.

Of course, with temperatures projected to reach the 60's by Sunday, that might not be such a hard thing for most central Iowans to do!!
