Colorado Springs postal worker makes snowman after truck breaks down

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

A Facebook user shared a lighthearted story Tuesday about Colorado Springs mail carrier Camby A. Lindsey, who kept an upbeat attitude during a tough situation during Tuesday's snowstorm.

Dean saw that Lindsey, who sings while delivering postage, had broken down outside of her home in the Northeast part of the city. Camby said it took about an hour for the Post Office to get another truck to her, so she filled the delay by playing in the snow.

"I like to do fun stuff. I threw snowballs, I made some snowmen," Lindsey said. "When life gives you lemons, you make snowmen."

Dean came down and asked Lindsey if she needed help. She told Dean she had help on the way and continued to sing.

"I've done that since I was a little kid," Lindsey said. "It got me in trouble, they called me the walking jukebox."

Lindsey, who has worked for the Postal Service for 18 years, said she wasn't worried about her vehicle breaking down. She said she cared more about getting the mail to all of her customers, some of whom are elderly.

Lindsey said she ended up making up for the hour-long delay, and completed her route on time.

Dean's Facebook post is pictured below.

    A long-standing Christmas display has been targeted by vandals.  Grinches set their eyes on human-sized candy canes lining Woodlawn Avenue in Canon City late last week. Several were thrown to the ground leaving them dented, chipped and some even went missing. While most have been put back up, many worry, these Grinches will strike again.
