CLEVELAND- You may have heard that “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night …” will prevent mail carriers from completing their appointed rounds.

But the unofficial motto of the U.S. Postal Service apparently doesn’t include the cold. Wednesday, the federal service says it will not deliver mail in parts of the Midwest including some areas of Ohio because of a dangerous Arctic air blast.

Tuesday evening, the Postal Service announced that includes part of the Cleveland area.

According to their website, that includes Northern Ohio (Cleveland and Lima areas) with zip codes that have 441 and 458.

The U.S. Postal Service wrote:
