Video: Mail carriers enjoy rare day off thanks to Blizzard of 2015

WORCESTER, Mass. (WHDH) – Standing waist deep in snow Jason Avant was clearing a path so his mailman can reach him, a task he knows firsthand is important.

"I deliver mail in West Boylston,” he said.

And today, he has the time to do it.

"Got the snow day off,” he said. "I kind of expected it because when they got that 30 inches a couple of years ago, they did it and it worked  out so well, just safety wise, money wise, we kinds expected they would again."
