Roaches cause temporary mail suspension in Buffalo

BUFFALO, N.Y. – The United States Postal Service prides itself on delivering the mail in the harshest of conditions. “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night” is supposed to slow a mail carrier, according to the agency’s unofficial motto.

Yet, somehow, on a perfectly sunny Friday in Buffalo, the Postal Service temporarily suspended mail delivery at 31 Marine Drive, a Buffalo Municipal Housing Authority building known as The Coastline. The problem, however, wasn’t snow, rain, heat or gloom of night.

It was roaches.
