I just think it is inappropriate to discuss anything else except them.
Nothing can stop the US postal service , but storm system Goliath is sure trying to ! Blizzard conditions hit this area last night with 50 - 60 mph winds and they haven't let up . These mailboxes have taken a ice beating over the last 15 or so hours .

At least 41 people (click here) were killed across seven states since Wednesday following days of severe weather, including flash floods in Illinois and tornadoes in Texas.
The Marion County, Illinois, Sheriff's Office said five people were killed Saturday as a major storm system brought flash flooding and blizzard conditions to parts of the United States.
In central Missouri, six were killed in two separate flooding incidents Saturday, said the Pulaski Sheriff’s Office.
Two deaths were reported in Alabama, 10 were reported in Mississippi, six were killed in Tennessee and one died in Arkansas....
There has never been this kind of weather in the USA. This is the first occurrence of severe, abrupt climate changes. Only a week after the first day of winter.
The Current Temperature (click here) map shows the current temperatures color contoured every 5 degrees F. Temperature is a physical property of a system that underlies the common notions of hot and cold; something that is hotter generally has the greater temperature. Specifically, temperature is a property of matter. Temperature is one of the principal parameters of thermodynamics. On the microscopic scale, temperature is defined as the average energy of microscopic motions of a single particle in the system per degree of freedom. On the macroscopic scale, temperature is the unique physical property that determines the direction of heat flow between two objects placed in thermal contact. If no heat flow occurs, the two objects have the same temperature; otherwise heat flows from the hotter object to the colder object. These two basic principles are stated in the zeroth law and second law of thermodynamics, respectively. For a solid, these microscopic motions are principally the vibrations of its atoms about their sites in the solid. For an ideal monatomic gas, the microscopic motions are the translational motions of the constituent gas particles. For a multiatomic gas, vibrational and rotational motion should be included too....
