Following note was on top of Woodpeckers E-mail to me this morning:
PLEASE NOTE: The United States Postal Service is currently experiencing extreme delays. Plan on at least 30 day transit times if you choose any USPS service.

JMO- I think this is not very accurate. I have one package that is finally moving- been 20 days. all others were delivered. I stopped shipping about the 18th. at least with USPS. did they get overwhelmed - sure did at least in parts of country. but I think they are rapidly catching back up.
if you look at last years shipping volume and this years I would bet there is a huge increase- 50% maybe. fed ex and UPS adjusted- private enterprise. USPS= Government. Not in the description to adapt quickly...

It is getting better, tools that were shipped Dec 7 are finally moving and I should have them in a couple of days. That is from Ohio to Illinois!

I ordered something else from a different place in Ohio and they were shipped Dec 29, and they'll be in the mail today.

Another item shipped from Oregon on Dec 29, and it is also arriving today, although it is coming FedEx.

So, FedEx can ship halfway across the country the same time USPS can get it moved two states.

I am still awaiting a package that was shipped to me on 12/18. Most definitely slower than usual! Chuck

A few days ago I made an Amazon order expecting expecting the delivery in serval days. That night the door bell rang at about 8:00 and I got to the door in time to see what appeared to be a Subaru pulling out of the driveway. The person delivered the order I placed that morning. My stuff was loose in a plastic grocery bag. Never had anything like that happen before. The closest Amazon distribution center is about 120 miles away. Now that is service.

They still don't have things figured out. Finally got my tools, but ordered some blanks last week, shipped day after ordering, now they've been sitting in Indianapolis for 4 days. Tracking tells me they are delayed, but "in transit" even though they haven't left Indy. Indiana to Illinois is normally one day shipping.

Finally received my shipment yesterday. Took 24 days from Pennsylvania to California! That's like stage coach timing! Chuck
