Another sign of the severity of the winter storm that has gripped the Buffalo metro area since Tuesday: Post offices are closed today. All Buffalo stations and branches of the U.S. Postal Service and all branches – all of the ones in ZIP codes that start with 142 – are closed, said Karen Mazurkiewicz, a spokeswoman for the postal service. Also, with major thoroughfares including the Thruway closed to tractor-trailer traffic, mail may not be getting through to the area. "Employees will attempt to deliver what mail is on hand in places where they can safely navigate roads," Mazurkiewicz said. In the meantime, the postal service asked the public to make sure steps and walkways are cleared of snow and ice and adequately salted for when letter carriers return. "Curbside mailboxes should be shoveled out enough so that carriers can deliver or collect mail without having to leave or back up their vehicles.

Subzero wind chills, possible snow squalls and cleaning up from yesterday’s snow all went into the equation for Harrisburg and other Dauphin County schools to close today.Harrisburg School District spokeswoman Kirsten Keys sent notice of a two-hour delay last night and a school cancelation today, but in Dauphin County, the decision to cancel classes is not made by just one superintendent in one district. “There’s a whole process in place when we make those decisions,” Keys said. “Dr. (Sybil) Knight-Burney is part of that consortium of superintendents.”Those superintendents hold conference calls as snow storms, polar vortices and any other potentially hazardous weather conditions approach.

In The Pinery, a few minutes south of Parker’s Mainstreet, a select group of builders has something to show you that you won’t find any closer to town: luxury homes, including a number of spacious ranch designs, that have the trees and views you’d expect from a mountain neighborhood, along with the easy commute and city services that only closer-in areas have. “People tell me that this is what they expected to find when they moved to Colorado,” says Trent Getsch with Re/Max Alliance, who will show you six homes ready or near-ready for move-in at Timbers at The Pinery, on a hilltop site at the very northernmost reaches of the Black Forest. “The thing that sets us aside is the trees,” Getsch adds, pointing to stands of ponderosa pines and Gambel oak that wrap the sites here. “We get lots of buyers from out-of-state who expect this kind of surrounding, but also some who have lived here all of their lives and have waited to get … [Read more...] about Just 20 minutes from the Tech Center, views and trees that are rare around Denver, with custom ranches ready
