For U.S. Postal workers, 1994 has come full circle.
As they organized, sorted and stuffed the millions of Christmas cards and letters last week, many possibly thought back to January when they were once again swamped with mail but for a different reason.
The snow storm of 1994 shut down everything for five days, including schools, businesses and even the one service thought unstoppable: the mail.
When they finally returned to work, the mail carriers’ bags must have swelled as large as any Christmas Eve.
