Post offices closed today and no mail delivery
« on: December 05, 2018, 05:50:24 AM »
It's frustrating because now I have to wait until tomorrow to get Jennie's CBD oil.  I wonder how many other people will be affected, or even worsely affected, and not get much needed medication.

I understand your frustration but this is a national holiday and was announced.

To honor the life and legacy of President Bush, the Postal Service will observe the national day of mourning.
All Post Office® locations will be closed.
Regular mail will not be delivered.
Package delivery will be limited.

USPS doesn't state what packages qualify as "limited."

Not a national holiday. Federal offices are closed in honor of former President Bush's funeral.  That's all. :)

 It was announced one day in advance. Which is not time for anyone who might be waiting for medication to make other arrangements.

I talked to the post office yesterday about my order.  I was assured someone would be there to take delivery, it wouldn't be sitting outside all day and night. But there isn't anyway for me to access it.

USPS packages we expected came by private courier.

How cool!  I use a post office box though and the po was closed so no luck for me.
