CHICAGO (CBS) ) — You know the old saying about how snow will not keep postal carriers from their appointed rounds?

Actually, that’s not even the official motto of the U.S. Postal Service. However, they do plan on delivering the mail on Wednesday after the Blizzard of 2011 hits, according to postal service spokesman Mark Reynolds.

As of midday Tuesday, the postal service was aiming for normal business operations on Wednesday. That obviously is subject to change, and operations could be curtailed after the storm passes.

The USPS is “still on for business as usual,” Reynolds said in an email to CBS 2

Anywhere from 12-24 inches of snow are expected Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
