Default USPS sighting----Labor Day

I thought I was seeing things but a USPS truck was on my street this morning.

Are they operating on a Sunday schedule for the holiday?

I think they make very limited package deliveries, not regular mail.

All we have here is outside contractors and they don't drive mail trucks. No service today.

I found this. So I guess they were making deliveries for Amazon.

Confirmed. Its for parcel delivery.
They usually use CCA's (city carrier assistants) for this.
We deliver 7 days a week now, but on Sundays and holidays, its express mail and Amazon parcels only.

If I'd seen a UFO, I'd be a little beside myself
