What's up with UPS

I have 3 separate ammo shipments delayed by "late trailers." All were scheduled for delivery by Thursday. I know its the Christmas season - are they out-of-control already?

Yes, they are on overload, plus it's winter and bad weather is happening to our west.

I had a Cabelas order that was shown as to be delivered Friday, at the end of the day they changed it to Monday. I think it has to do with the severe weather over a lot of the country.

Black Friday + Cyber Monday orders shipping and nasty weather across the north and mid west is slowing down delivery times.

I also just had packages lost by UPS and USPS the same week. Also beware if tracking info shows as "delivered" to your house/business when the package was not. I had that happen with the UPS package and they only confirmed it was delivered to the wrong address and could not retrieve it.

On a related note: A Fedex delivery guy driving a Budget Rental truck delivered something to our house last night. I've never seen that before. I wanted to ask him but he dropped the package and left.

The wind chill hit -20 in parts if the Midwest this week. Global warming has these freak ice storms on the rise.

I've got a temp UPS driver this week. Don't think she knows how to back the truck up. She parks in the road in my neighborhood and walks down long driveways and through yards from house to house with bundles of packages like Santa Claus.
