Above and beyond

First there was fire. Then there was flood. The Manitou, CO, Post Office was impacted by the fast-moving Waldo Canyon fire last year that destroyed more than 300 homes.

This year, flash floods have washed over the burn area over several days, depositing debris throughout the downtown, flooding homes and closing highways. Cars, mud, and boulders blocked access to the Post Office until city officials cleared a path and the carriers were able to dispatch to their routes.

“The carriers are going above and beyond to get mail to our customers,” said Postmaster Rick Medina. “They’re resilient.”
