Mail missing since snow storm, residents say

Mother Nature delivered the winter weather, but the post office didn’t deliver the mail in some parts of Chicago.

Residents on the 5700 block of Markham have not received their letters and packages since Saturday they say.

The United States Postal Service says the delays were caused by the Polar Vortex. The heavy snow, low temperatures and difficulty traveling slowed down letter carriers in vehicles and on foot.  As a safety precaution, the post office decided against having letter carriers work extra hours to make up for the backlog.

But a few days removed from the winter weather that practically shut down Chicago, some people want to know why they still don’t have their deliveries.

    If anyone hasnt received their mail, they may go to USPS.COM put a hold order on it and then pick it up. Or they can just call post office and request carrier leave it at Post Office for owner to pick up. Your mail isnt being kept from u. I am a carrier in a small town in a rural area. If you streets arent accessible
    and the mailbox isnt cleared of snow, then we can not deliver your mail.

      And let's not forget the big elephant in the room, that Rahm didn't bother to plow any of the side streets. If his name was Jane Byrn he'd be ruined.
