Frigid Weather Brings Shipping Delays

Monday, January 6th, 2014 | Author:

Globe-SnowmanUPDATE: UPS and Fed Ex are reporting that the majority of their delivery services will be back to normal operations today [Tuesday]. We at OWC anticipate all services to be back to normal cutoff times this evening.

Things here at OWC Headquarters in Woodstock, Ill. got a little chilly today. And by a little chilly we, of course, mean an arctic freeze. The weather outside is about -15°F at the time this is being written. (For our Celsius preferring friends that’s -25°C.) If you’ve never seen temperatures that cold, let me put it this way, the steam from your breath forms little ice crystals on your scarf and your eyeballs literally freeze open. There’s no place like home!

For those of us who live in the north, this kind of weather can mean many things:  it’s time for a polar bear dip (brrrrrrrr) and maybe some ice fishing; hot chocolate and coffee sales are about to go through the roof; and no matter how many layers you’re wearing, your mom won’t think it’s enough (and it’s a fairly good bet that one foot outside will prove her right.) And perhaps our least favorite – the carriers are having a bad day as well. Planes ice over, roads turn into a scene from the winter levels of Mario Kart, and in some cases it’s deemed dangerous to spend the significant amount of time outside that is required to deliver packages.
