If a picture is worth a thousand words, how many words is an animated GIF worth? Probably more than I’ll write in this post. Today’s clouds are a rather monotonous blanket of grey. It felt like it was going to snow, when I went outside to fetch the paper and there are great big blue blobs of Oobleck on the weather radar. It might snow today, but then again, it might not. Even if it does snow, rain will soon quickly wash it all away. “AM Ice”, that’s today’s forecast, followed by days of rain. Sounds like getting out this week will be difficult.
Meanwhile, inside this once happy home, Anne is not pleased. Since Christmas our package to Dave and Maren has not moved. There have been no further updates for days. We mailed the package on the 10th, for two-day delivery and now it has essentially disappeared. Today, Anne initiated the USPS lost package procedure or at least she tried to. After entering all of the particulars, she got the 404 error. She then tried to save a draft of her claim and that too had just up and disappeared. Cheeses Crisis! Her new family friendly swear word. She is about to try it again now. I may have to go for a walk, even if it is raining or snowing.
Our package mailed on the 11th, finally arrived on the 26th. It was stuck in Denver from the 14th to the 24th.
There’s hope yet! Anne finally got through on the USPS help line. It’s race now, between when the package eventually arrives and when the service notice that she initiated is acted upon.
