The below-freezing temperatures earlier this week affected the U.S. Postal Service's mail delivery, leaving some Tinley Park residents without mail for a few days.
Mail carriers needed to be off the streets by 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 6, because of the cold and were told only to deliver to businesses, curbside boxes, centralized boxes and boxes in enclosed apartment buildings, said Lee Junious, a customer service supervisor with the post office.
On Tuesday, Jan. 7, carriers were told they could deliver to all the stops on their routes, but they still had to stop by 5 p.m., Junious said.
As of Wednesday, Jan. 8, delivery is back to normal, but carriers are still being asked to stop at 6 or 7 p.m., Junious added.
