How to get your mail

Carrier annex as viewed from Ballinger Way

The snow kept a lot of mail carriers from running their complete routes.

According to local USPS contact Ernie Swanson, "Carriers are not to attempt delivery unless access to the mailbox is safe. The mail will be held and delivered at the first safe opportunity."

He said that the carriers take all the mail with them on their route but if they can't deliver it they will take it back to the Carrier Annex in Mountlake Terrace.

It isn't required but "it would definitely make a difference if customers provided safe access to their mailbox by removing snow and ice."

Customers whose mail comes via the North City Post Office may be able to pick up their mail at the Carrier Annex but if the carrier is on his/her route, the mail would be with him/her.

The Carrier Annex is at Gateway Place in Mountlake Terrace, 6005 244th St SW, Ste 101, Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043. It is in the old Office Depot building next to the Cinebarre movie theater and the Mazatlan Mexican restaurant.

Or you can wait for your road to be clear.

I wish you had posted this article much sooner. Yesterday I spent extra time at the Gateway post office, in line, only to be told by a very unpleasant employee, to go to the Mountlake Terrace annex, without any explanation of where it was, just an address on a piece of paper. At that location, no one acknowledged my presence for at least 5 minutes, and then finally someone did help me, and fetched all our mail from the last 10 days. When I went home, lo and behold the carrier had delivered just that one day's mail to our mailbox. It was all very frustrating and a lot of wasted time.
