U.S. Postal Service gets creative after floods

JEFFERSON COUNTY - Neither snow nor rain nor floods can keep people from getting their mail.

A Jefferson County bridge closed during recent flooding cut off mail delivery for some residents. So, the U.S. Postal Service got creative and is delivering mail by wheelbarrow.

Mail carriers will be using the hand-propelled vehicles to deliver the letters and packages until the water recedes enough for the Trumbull Bridge to reopen, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said.

Delivery by wheelbarrow will mean some residents will have to wait longer than usual to get their mail.
