Last week’s snow brought shipping to a halt, but companies have worked to make sure packages arrive on your doorstep before Christmas.

Police all over the country say package thieves are on the prowl this time of year.

Christmas Eve will be a big delivery day, so if you won't be home during the day you may want to ask a neighbor to grab anything delivered off your front steps.
