Santa's Helpers-Postal Workers

About 15-hundred mail carriers fanned out across Colorado and Wyoming yesterday making a rare Sunday delivery.

Today, about 500 carriers will be making an even rarer Christmas delivery of thousands of storm-delayed packages.

Postal Service spokesman Al DeSarro calls it an unprecedented effort.

A blizzard dropped up to three-and-a-half feet of snow on Colorado and Wyoming last week, disrupting mail service amid the Christmas delivery crunch.

The storm also shut down roads, businesses, schools and airports -- including Denver International, the nation's fifth-busiest.

DeSarro says hundreds of thousand of packages arrived at post offices in the two states in the last three days.
