Emergency conditions beyond UPS' control.

anyone seen that one before?
thats what I get tracking a part now.
awesome!
it sat in dallas for 4 days saying "Adverse weather conditions", finally made it from dallas to the local depot, now I get this : Emergency conditions beyond UPS' control.

no snow left for a couple of days now, temps in the high 50s-60s during the day, umm WTF?

I can only assume my front wheel bearing is sitting there in the depot somewhere too.

I had the same thing right after Christmas. It was from a snow storm in the Central US. held up my Poison Spyder gear for a few extra days. It was kinda weird seeing it but nothing you can do. It will get there soon enough.

If you had to wear little brown short shorts, you wouldn't want to work outside in the snow either.

This is where the USPS wins. Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor some other shit I can't remember... and whatnot.

That was funnier in my head.

*ahem*. Well... this is awkward. I'm going to go hang out in the drunk posting thread now.

Mine arrived in DFW on the 3rd, adverse weather delay, then left on the 4th, then took 3 days to get to KC. Says it's supposed to be on my doorstep by EOD Tuesday. We'll see.

Yeah they cock blocked 3 of my deliveries on Friday as well even though I drove Past the their satellite office 4 times on Friday but they had adverse weather conditions, WTF?! Funny thing is that all three of them said out for delivery at 7:28 and at noon is when they changed it to the adverse weather statement. So my poly ball joints, c gussets from poly; rear drivers power doorlock actuator and front dash switch controls for the power winows from Scott(mspc?); 80" oil rubbed bronze hand held shower hose and my new ariat boots which are still in limbo in Kansas have screwed up all my projects for the past weekend. Well the boots I just need for work, but it still sucks.

The other day there was a USPS lady on TV and she said "We're the only entity that shows up to EVERY door in the country EVERY day..."...

She was kinda right...

Haha, my master shower is a 5 x 6 shower pan with two independent shower heads, the previous hose was too short and needed a longer one as my 2 year old son loves to play with the hand held part and spray the water everywhere. But what my wife does in there with it I couldn't tell ya! And my boots are/ were stuck in misquite Tx as well, I haven't checked on the status yet.

Man, I can't begin to tell ya... Imagine working twelve hours straight, boxing up orders, printing out labels and customs forms (to the tune of $5k in UPS fees), scheduling that pickup for the next morning (your customers having received "Your order has shipped!" notices), going home and going to bed.

Next morning, you call UPS "You're making that pickup, right?" "Oh yes, of course!"

3pm rolls around "Are you sure you're making that pickup?" "Umm, sir, there is no UPS service at all in Houston right now."

*frazzle*

We got a local store to take our air and international shipments if we drove them to them, but no one would take the ground shipments until Monday, and then it took 'til midnight on Monday for them to update status (status updated to: "Extreme weather circumstances, delays beyond our control.") -- 75 emails later, and the customs are still freaking out *sigh*


... I aint touching USPS - all we got for four hundred boxes shipped through them was four hundred nightmares. I'll take UPS's shipping delays due to ice any day, over a package saying it "left the US" four weeks ago and no updates since then.

A few months ago I had some cigars that sat in a New Jersey UPS distribution warehouse for almost 2 weeks because of "adverse weather conditions". It does happen and I don't worry too much about it as long as the shipment can't be damage by improper storage conditions for a short periods of time, such as food or wine.

I was laughing at you because of this.

Then I was told by Dookey that my pallet of tires/wheels were sitting on a truck waiting for the snow to clear out!

I guess I probably deserved it...

I ran into this same issue with the neoprene winch cover and rock hard license plate relocate kit I bought from Northridge 4x4. Shipped out last monday, finally got here today. Sat in Chicago for 5 days with the inclement weather message on the tracking site.
