Albert Mabie, mail carrier on rural route number one, expressed his opinion that in the nearly 34 years of his experience carrying mail over his route, he had never seen roads go to pieces so quickly as they did this year. Friday was not a day to his liking for travel for he found it necessary to be pulled out of the mud 16 times -- 11 times on one mile of road.
