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.
