This seems to be turning into my personal blog. Really quick though, I reported live this morning from the Salt Lake City Main Post Office. Ron Hubrich was so great to meet me there early, early in the snow at the processing facility. He talked to me about how today is the busiest day for them. 1.6 million letters and over 250-thousand packages -- double their normal volume. The facility is huge, and has tons of carts and bins full of mail. They are moved around the facility on small trains that move on tracks above you. I didn't have nearly enough time to go over all of Ron's tips for last-minute mailers, so if you want, you can listen to my whole interview with him here.
