The Bloomington Indiana Herald Times reports that letter carriers in that city were called in to deliver their routes on Sunday after a winter storm cancelled most deliveries on Saturday.
Letter carrier Josh Peterson climbed snow-covered steps up and down East Second Street on his way to stuffing mailbox after mailbox.
“I’ve never delivered mail on a Sunday,” said Peterson, a 6 1/2-year Postal Service veteran. “I enjoy having a day off, but I definitely want to make sure we’re getting everything out.”
Peterson was one of about 16 carriers delivering mail within Bloomington’s city limits. Some carriers were also out delivering mail to Monroe County’s rural communities.
The newspaper notes that while the USPS does deliver some packages on Sunday, especially during the holiday season, this was the first time in recent memory that carriers had delivered regular mail on a Sunday.
