The holiday mail crush combined with epic snow dumps in December and in January — are causing delivery woes in Silverthorne and Dillon in Summit County.
Even going to the post office to pick up mail means waiting for an hour or more.
The postal service is bringing in more help to reduce the backlog, said David Rupert, spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service in Colorado.
Starting Thursday, the Postal Service is temporarily adding five clerks to work with the four-clerk staff that splits its time between the post offices in Dillon and Silverthorne, Rupert said.
