    What a lovely post office (PO)! Fortunately, no one was hurt due to the time of the earthquake. I do sincerely hope the Pacific Area of the USPS fix up the Napa PO, though it’ll be costly. Such graceful PO buildings need to be kept for posterity. Such architectural work is disappearing. I hope and pray for a speedy recovery. At the same time, let’s all prepare reasonably for disasters.
