Weather Impact Update 2/2/2011 10:44AM CST - UPS and FedEx notified us that there will be no pick-ups or deliveries in our area (for a second day) today. They also find it unlikely that normal pick-ups and deliveries will be available tomorrow (2/3/2011). Only UPS critical air service will likely be available - for any mission essential orders please contact us and we will make every effort to utilize any air service available to us until these interruptions pass. Also; USPS did not provide normal service yesterday (2/1/2011). Currently we are running approx. 3 days behind on order processing. We will make every effort to shorten our processing time by the end of the week, but for now expect delays of up to 3 days before your order will leave our facility.

We are also experiencing rolling electricity blackouts in our area. While we are equipped with diesel powered electricity onsite, the power interruptions can also impact our network service. Website outages are possible.

Please use email for communications whenever possible. Thanks for your understanding... DSG Crew.

RWH if TxDot had the equipment and resources like governments up north to salt/ice/service the roads it wouldn't be that bad. But we'll never invest in it because we'd only need it once a year.

I doubt it, all they ever did before was curtail bulk rate mail on bad weather days. Floods and hurricanes, that was different.

Ha. I just posted about UPS. Not about their delayed delivery but about their lying driver that said he tried to deliver a package to us yesterday. He could make it up the solid ice hill to my driveway to deliver the "attempted delivery" notice but couldn't drive up my flat driveway once he got here? There was definitely somebody home and you can see the smoke coming out our chimney. In reality, I suspect that he didn't even come up our road. He probably dropped his slip off at the Post Office in town and let them deliver it with the mail. POS. I'm sorry. Lying POS.

Our normal UPS driver is awesome. She told me today that yesterday was the first day in 22 years that the Sulphur Springs hub closed for anything... pretty good.

The Dallas UPS hub was closed on Tuesday. I can not speak for any other hubs but I can say the Dallas hub was open and running on Wednesday.

I find it VERY hard to believe a hub doing deliveries in the Whitsboro area would have been open if the Dallas hub was closed.

Tuesday was the first day in 29 years the Dallas hub was closed for a "normal business day".
