Local mailman embraces cold temperatures head on

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) – Unfortunately for many temperature drops and snow doesn’t mean getting a day off of work. 

Gregg Charpentier, a local USPS mailman, says it can be dangerous when people don’t shovel their driveways or stairs, but he’s happy to be out there rain, shine, or snow.

“We talk about safety every day,” Charpentier said. “[USPS] makes sure we have everything we need to get through the day safely. You see people get happy and bring a little hope to everyone’s day which is nice.”
