Major USPS Delays?

A guitar was sent out with usps claiming it would arrive by this monday (5 business days) and its wednesday and there no sign of it. I got a little paranoid and I went on the web and I found out that people have been getting major delays or even worse losing their package through usps. Any one have any experience recently or at all with this type of thing? Thanks.

With all the severe weather they have dropped the "Neither rain nor sleet nor snow" motto. Keep waiting.

Yeah man. It's probably due to severe weather conditions.

Yes, they delays are due to the terrible snow storms. I have something on order that should have been here a week ago. I called and they said the USPS carrier couldn't get to them. It's only been 5 days for you so hang in there.

Now I need to point out that I ship candle orders worldwide (much smaller than guitars of course), but we get the boxes for free, pick ups for free, lower prices when we ship via their website, and they have those awesome flat rate boxes that just kick @ss for us. And even though their prices seem to be constantly going up it's still a less expensive alternative with better options!


Also if they can't get to your door, due to icy walks or snow drifts, they are instructed obviously not to risk injury because a homeowner hasn't cleared his walk off!
