North Dakota mail carriers endure cold, snow to guarantee deliveries

BISMARCK, N.D. – The wind and snow prompted many businesses owners to stay closed Friday, but postal workers still had to make their rounds.

Ron Isaak, a veteran postal worker, trudged through the snow and overcame drifts to make sure residents got their daily delivery.

Mountains of mail are handled at the Bismarck Processing and Distribution Facility.

On days like Friday, the job of moving all those packages and letters is a heavy lift.
