Get Your Christmas Cards, Packages From the Post Office During The Storm

North Carolina -- With winter weather up ahead, if you want your mail you may have to do a little labor.

The Postal Service is reminding customers to keep curbside mailboxes and walkways free of snow and ice for safe delivery.

For curbside delivery, snow must be cleared to the curb for a least six feet on both sides of the mailbox so the carriers' cars may approach and leave without backing up.

Delivery that is unable to take place safely due to snow or ice will be attempted again the next day.

Customers with questions or comments about their mail service can call toll-free 1-800-ASK-USPS (800-275-8777) or contact @USPShelp via twitter.
