Snow, sleet or hail may not stop mail carriers from their appointed rounds, but if the highways are closed, they won't have anything to deliver.
Canada Post says that some customers in southern Manitoba — including Brandon — may see delayed mail delivery today, after blizzard-like conditions forced a large number of highway closures over the weekend.
The highways were re-opened this morning.
The mail has started to arrive, according to a Canada Post spokesman, and every attempt is being made to get all the mail out for delivery today, but some addresses may not receive postal service until tomorrow.
Home owners can help out by making sure that they clear the snow and ice from their sidewalks, walkways and stairs, Canada Post says.
