Even in areas scorched by California wildfires, mail delivery continues

One of the eeriest images of the recent fires in Northern California is this drone footage of a USPS mail truck making deliveries to a series of burned-out houses:

Creepy? You said it. But apparently the postal service was honoring requests from customers who would be returning to their former residences to claim their mail.

Personally, I’m impressed that in spite of everything, mail delivery continues. It seems rather in keeping with the unofficial post office motto:

Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.
