You may be wondering if there'll be any new mail in your Wilmington mailbox today (that is, if you can even make it to your mailbox, with all this snow.)
Several readers have asked that question, including Wilmington Patch Facebook follower Diane Cisto Breslin.
The answer is that mail service in all of New England — not just Massachusetts — has been suspended, according to the Huffington Post.
The ban extends throughout all six New England states. The unusual decision was made due to safety concerns, according to Postal Service spokeswoman Christine Dugas.
The decision came after over two feet of snow falling throughout much of New England made many roads impassable, she said. Dugas reminded people to clear around their mailboxes or paths to their homes by Monday, when mail delivery will resume.
