Amid the snows last week, many of us did not receive a mail delivery for two, or even three days, especially in areas north of Main Street. While we were tempted to complain, it turns out that, in addition to the storms, the Cold Spring post office was short staffed with one carrier on vacation and another out ill.
But, true to the motto, “Nor sleet, nor snow, nor gloom of night . . .” three stalwarts — Leslie Delamater, Walter Klietz and Aaron Pulicano, and possibly others — braved the mess, did double duty in unfamiliar jobs, and saw to it that our mail got delivered.
Kudos and thanks to all!
