While most kids across southern Colorado had a snow day after the latest storm, not everyone is as lucky.

A lot of folks don't get snow days and have to keep right on working.

Some of those folks are postal workers and right after a snow storm can be a dangerous time for them.

The Post Office says hundreds of mail carriers are hurt every year due to slips and falls, and most accidents happen right after a big storm.

To help carriers out and make sure you still get your mail, clear the walkways and stairs leading up to mail boxes of any ice or snow.
