On Wednesday, some residents in the Chicago area were not expected to get mail delivery, though most post offices were open for window service, according to Sean Hargadon, spokesman for the postal service's Northern Illinois District in Carol Stream.

"Where feasible, mail delivery will be attempted," he said Wednesday.

"We are respecting the requests of local municipalities and the Illinois Department of Transportation regarding road closures and other transportation restrictions," he said, adding that employee safety is a major concern.

Postal authorities were preparing to resume delivery on Thursday, weather permitting, he added, directing people to for updates and to conduct some postal business.
