Default Holman mail room extra slow?

I have a friend in Holman. I sent my last letter to him on Black Friday and havenít heard back yet... feels extreme even given the holidays and the fact this is Holman. Anyone else find the mail is really really slow right now?

Completely different state (penpal is in AZ) but since just before thanksgiving our mail has been painfully slow. We talk everyday on the phone so we know exactly when we send them, some of his are taking 2-3 weeks to get to me. I use Jmail which is a California PO box service that scans the day they receive them. I guess it’s just a bad time of year for mail with the holidays ect

I think a lot of delays can be expected in the holiday season. Postal services are busier and prison mail rooms will be busier.

Its all a waiting game but I am sure you will hear from him soon.

Yeah, I expected things to be kinda slow but I didnít know they could go this slow... but this Holman

I just thought it was maybe unusually slow because I sent letters to another penpal in Texas about 2 weeks ago and got my letter yesterday, I was really surprised the turnaround was that fast
