The Post Office in West Hartford Center is closing. There are always long lines in the Post Office, so it can't be closing because of a lack of business.
But, there is little available land in West Hartford Center, and the land on which the Post Office sits is pretty valuable. There are two other post offices in town. I think they just decided to turn the valuable asset into cash.
The closing will inconvenience some people, but with more and more people communicating and paying bills on the internet instead of with snail mail, the Postal Service is hemorrhaging money. I can't complain. Worse trade-offs have to be made.
My twin liked how the top photo came out. I thought it made my butt look big. He said we were just carrying lots of stuff in our pockets.
On Friday, James hosts Weekend Reflections, where you can see other photos with reflections.
