Local mail carrier pushes through harsh weather

Updated: Jan 13

Steve Roell has worked for the USPS for three years

(BATESVILLE, Ind.) -- Local mail carriers are tasked with performing their job each day regardless of the weather conditions.


Snow nor rain will stop U.S. Postal Service workers from walking house-by-house in our Southeast Indiana communities and neighborhoods.


On Saturday morning, during the harsh winds and bitter temperatures, we came across Steve Roell who works at the Batesville Post Office.


Roell joined the USPS three years ago after a 32-year career as an engineer and project manager at Hill-Rom and Wittrock.


We asked him how Saturday's conditions compared to other weather events he's worked.


"This isn't as bad as last winter, that would be the worst," he recalled. "We were limited to how many minutes we could be outside in the wind chill, and had to make sure we weren't out too long."


Roell also mentioned that this past Friday was one of the worst days in recent memory, with the rain showers and gusty winds.


Despite battling the elements, he says being a mail carrier is still less stressful than his previous career in engineering.


"Plus they pay me to stay in shape," Roell laughed.


We met Roell while he was delivering mail on Western Avenue in Batesville.


What's his favorite part of the job?


"The people on my route are very friendly and I like when they come outside and say Hello Mr. Mailman, how are you doing," Roell said.


Thank you, Steve, and all of the local mail carriers working outside on days like this!
