Snail Mail

Is anyone else having a delay getting snail mail from Texas, specifically the Clements Unit? I know there are many parts to getting old fashioned mail that can delay a letter arriving but I have usually got a letter the same day for the past few months.I am in the UK by the way.

Yeah, there definitely seems to be a delay atm. My pp is at Wynne, not at Clements, but mail's been hell of slow...

I think that I have been lucky until now that I got my letters back in a week and a half, always on the same day so now it has been two weeks I am a bit concerned. Thank you for letting me know this is also the case for you and I hope you get a letter back from your pp soon!

I'm getting letters two weeks after the usps postmark here in the UK. Don't know if the delay is after it's in the usps system or when it gets to the UK.

Yeah it's hard to work out where the delay lies but apparently at this time of the year they can be delayed due to different holidays, more mail, staff leave etc

Hey, I am from the U.S. on the eat coast, near Boston. I have a pp in Texas. Ferguson unit. Was getting letters regularly every two weeks. Now nothing for three. Not sure if it is holidays or something else. I sent a short letter yesterday by priority just to say that I wasnt being rude or ignoring pp. Anyone know anything about delays at Ferguson?

From Clements unit? Yes! My penpal and I were just talking about that yesterday. His letters usually take 3 days and now they've been taking up to a week to get to me.

I guess it's multiple units. My penpal is at Allred and I usually hear back from him within a week but this time around it's taking way longer. I wonder how long til things get back on track .

Yeah things seemed to get back on track briefly at the beginning of January but now huge delays again. I guess they have quite a backlog from the holidays, maybe that's the delay plus lockdowns can happen. I think maybe there has been one recently at Clements as you couldn't visit or buy e-comms.
