You guessed it......

More snow overnight, only a couple of inches, which is not much really, but when it is added to the  snow we received on the weekend the piles keep getting deeper and deeper.  My snow angel, not the one I made as a child by laying in the snow and moving my arms to make "wings".   No, this angel is my neighbour, he is blowing the snow out of my driveway, again.   I would be housebound if it wasn't for him.

I remove the snow from my front porch, if I didn't the mail delivery person may not leave my mail.
However, by the end of 2015 that is not going to be an issue any more.  In recent years, whenever a new housing development is built, banks of mail boxes have been installed.  Each household is  assigned a box, their mail is delivered to these and the people living in those developments  go and pick up their own mail from the boxes.  These types of mail boxes are going to be erected  in  existing neighbourhoods across the city where I live.  

 It is going to be difficult for seniors and people with mobility issues to pick up their mail, however,   in the correspondence which has been issued by Canada Post, it states,  assistance will be given to these people, however, they will be required to apply for this help.  

Do you have to pick up your mail from mail boxes or do you receive delivery to your door?

Time is ticking away.........must get going

Have a great day.

community mail boxes for us here. Did have end of driveway delivery at the last house, but haven't had door to door delivery in many, many years now.

It sounds as though you're getting tired of cold and snow! I am too, and find myself thinking of summer and everything I want to do outdoors! Our mail get delivered to the mailbox which is across the street from my house. Not too far to walk, but still. I hope the promised help is available for those who need it in your town.
