So, best case scenario is that the letters weren't picked up until yesterday and there's at least a two day turn around for simple letters going through the USPS - though it usually ends up being three at the quickest.
tl;dr: Prediction: DC residents might see something tomorrow, all of us other folks will see something on Monday.
...Unless if there are emails involved. In which case: All bets are off.
My DR came late on 11/30 (after 4) and I was surprised to find the letter in my box the next day (in DC).
