Neither snow nor rain*, except for these zipcodes

Neither snow nor rain*, except for these zipcodes: Hammock Publishing’s postal maven says the Postal Service is updating this page with information about specific Katrina-hit zipcode areas that do not have service.


Effective immediately, the Postal Service is not accepting any Standard Mail or Periodicals Mail – from any source – addressed for delivery within the following three-digit ZIP Code ranges: Mississippi – 369, 393, 394, 395, 396 Louisiana – 700, 701

*Trivia: There is no official USPS motto despite the famous inscription on the New York General Post Office at 8th & 33rd: “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
