Here’s to our Postal Workers and they are earning their paycheck in New England this winter, for sure! Taken 1/29/11 along a rural road in Chelmsford, Massachusetts USA. The New England area has been hit with storm after storm which has dropped at least 60 inches of snow on us over the past two months! And, it is only January!!! :(
