Or with all the snow the city is shut down

At least yours are moving. Mine left STL at 3am Wednesday and haven't been scanned since.

I prepped a transmute and placed the order, but have yet to print postage since I am not sure when I will make it to the post office. Tomorrow if I am lucky. Still waiting for my court to be cleared so I can get onto the street.
Tenth level achieved! Now for the long journey to 11th level!

My transmute order for some reason decided to go through Indianapolis, rather than go straight to St. Louis. Oh well. I now have the infamous "In transit. Arriving on Time" message which means they don't know where it is. It's expected delivery is tomorrow, when I'm certain it will likely be undeliverable. Last time that happened they didn't make the 2nd attempt until the following Tuesday.

Update: After arriving 49 hours earlier, my package has finally left Indy.

Fair point. Chicago got hit on Wednesday, but the predicted second wave of snow yesterday fizzled out, so we’ve basically been fine since yesterday afternoon. I forget sometimes that downstate IL has its own weather. Let’s hope southern IL digs out soon.

And I hope everyone else’s packages made it to TDHQ soon too.

I received the same message. I am guessing USPS didn't really try to deliver today because the scan for arrival at the Carbondale post office was at 10:02 a.m. and the delivery attempt supposedly occurred at 10:26 a.m. Also possible that TD is buried under snow right now.

Post office in San Diego California is "Directionally challenged". I recently bought a token that was shipped from California to Hawaii before finally being sent to Rhode Island. Only about a 4000 miles detour. 😄😄😄😄😄😄😄

I had the same thing last weekend and now realized I never got a delivered update on Monday. So now I'm tripping out lol. I emailed Mrs. Lori to see if it did show up...fingers are crossed.

No surprise here. My package finally made it to St. Louis yesterday, was forwarded to Carbondale, was out for delivery this morning. Of course, the delivery attempt failed, they'll try again next week. Sigh.

If it is delivered on Monday, I guess I should be happy it only took 6 days. Imagine if it wasn't priority mail. This just reinforces my decision to make the drive to do larger transmutes in person or wait for a con.

What if Lori is paying the post office to do this. She is not awesome you all know that.
