I was thinking about writing my husband today. havn't sent him any mail. How's the mailroom running lately??? The first letter he sent me took 5 days and the second one took 2 days. Not bad for sending it to Vegas. But is it just as fast to get to them? Do you guys think that with this lockdown it will affect it? I know it will with these 1300 inmates coming in and the visits too. Thanks:D

I've been wondering this too. My Bf is in reception and the first letter I sent him was on Friday the 17th. Since then I've pretty much sent him mail every day, but I haven't gotten a thing back from him. In my first and second letter to him I sent him a letter package with paper, envelopes and stamps. Since nobody has hear from him since he was taken in, I would think that he would be writing me, his mom and his granma frantically, but none of us have heard from him. Is this normal? Does mail take long to get sorted in and out of CIM reception? Or do you think it might have something t odo with where he's at or ghis current status there? It's been over a week and I haven't gotten anything at all.

i got a letter from my butt munch within the first week of being taken there, and i hadn't sent him envelopes or anything(must've bummed them). but i think i takes longer for theirs to go out, then the ones we send. my guys tells me he puts the letters out at night, and they don't get mail on the weekends. ya never know. sometimes it's 2 days, sometimes a little more.

My husband has been at CIM for almost a year now...for the last few months the mail has been really fast, I'd get letters about two days after he'd send them. But lately it's been super slow! I got a letter from him this past saturday that was post stamped the 14th! That's 12 days, and I'm only in Orange County!! He said it's gotten really slow on his end too, taking a week and a half to get my letters. Hopefully it'll speed back up again.
