Snow me once shame on me....

Dear Hamilton County,

It is now Day 2 without a snow plow or mail delivery at my house. Now in case you weren't aware, I actually pay extra taxes for the privilege of living on cul-de-sac. As such, I, your faithful tax-payer, would expect a little extra attention or, at the very least, the same attention provided to the rest of my neighborhood.

For two days now, we have watched the snow plows make their way through the neighborhood, directly toward our street, hit the stop sign and....turn around. Leaving our worth-extra-taxes street under six inches of snow. Is it really so tough to drive a snow plow in a circle? Tougher than the seven-point-turn it took to turn that bad boy around (which he did expressly to avoid driving it in a circle around my cul-de-sac)?

And for two days now, we have watched the mail truck make it's way slowly through the neighborhood, directly toward our street, hit the stop sign and....turn around. Leaving our worth-extra-taxes mailbox empty. Whatever happened to 'neither wind, nor rain, nor sleet, nor snow' shall stop the mail service?

Since my extra taxes mean nothing to you, I will wait patiently for my tax adjustment in the mail. And keep my fingers crossed that the street is cleared by the time the mailman attempts to deliver it.

Sincerely,
Snowed Taxpayer

Are you kidding??

I was just thinking that in my 23 years of Hoosier living I think the mail has only ever not been delivered twice - both times before I was even in high school.

That's crazy!

Really? Wow! That's not cool at all! My parents live WAY up in the mountains of VA and a snowplow even managed to make it to them - in 2 feet of snow! I hope they plow you out soon!

How frustrating!! I have the wimpiest mailman ever.... we have two inches on the ground and he didn't deliver the mail today. He DID, however, deliver a notice that he won't deliver the mail unless he can see the pavement. Explain that one to me....
