Does this mean that if the Post Office is down that I have 90 days grace before the mortgage company can start forclosure on my house because I haven't been able to get the payment to them for a couple of months?? Thought not.

on the way home, the news reported that the President will sign the bill. That's all I caught of the broadcast - thanks to rush hour idiots.
