    UPS - Adverse Weather Conditions???

    I've got a pretty sizeable order being shipped up to Oroville Washington. I've been following the package online and since Monday it's been stuck in Hodgkins, IL due to adverse weather conditions. Say what?? I've checked the weather in and around the Chicago area since Saturday and there's been nothing but a few clouds. Not even any rain!

    I did a google search and apparently this has happened quite a bit with UPS in the past few years. It seems like if they screw up or lose a shipment they just post it as being in Hodgkins and put the status as adverse weather conditions or train derailment.

    Has anyone else experienced this with UPS? Either prior to or currently?

    (Talk about frustrating. I have a metro vac, pad washer, foam gun, pads and all kinds of stuff coming. It was supposed to be here by tomorrow. Gah!!!!)

    UPS - Adverse Weather Conditions???

    I called in and the operator said I'd have to wait until after tomorrow to check on the shipment. She said it might have just missed an outgoing scan.

    I'm going to go ahead and call bull s#%*

    almost all previous orders have gone through Salt Lake City, not Illinois...
    and ground trucks do not scan often...

    Seattle is about as far as AG can ship by ground... wink/smile...

    I know Milwaukee's airport was closed for flooding a few days ago. Lots of heavy rain, so my guess is flooding.

    UPS - Adverse Weather Conditions???

    That's what I'm hoping for. Even if it's delayed, I can understand that. I mean the logistics of moving all those packages all over the world is mind boggling. But if it's lost or got shipped somewhere by accident just be honest about it. You know? I can take a screw up, just don't lie to me.

    Has anyone else run into the "adverse weather conditions in Hodgkins, IL before??

    Let me make sure I fully understand your situation. You are whining like a baby and your order is not late yet. Is that correct?
