Woke up to an e-mail from USPS in regards to a survey for the recent case number I opened with them. They wanted to know how they did, rating them on 0-5 and 0-10 scales and whatnot. I gave them an “average satisfactory” rating, because even though they are significantly slower than years past, they at least DO respond to inquiries about lost/delayed mail in a reasonable amount of time. I’m pretty sure Amazon and UPS has no such feature at all (but I am not 100% sure about that). Also, nearly everything delivered by Amazon is mis-delivered, from what I can tell, because I get packages for neighbors all the time, and I don’t even have an Amazon account!nnAnyway, according to USPS, the tobacco order will arrive by 9:00 PM tonight, which I am not betting on, but if it does get delivered at any point today, I will be quite happy.nnI’ve already had coffee on this cold/gusty/overcast morning and I am feeling OK. Wouldn’t mind if the sun came out, but not likely until tomorrow, where the #stlwx temps will slowly creep up from the low-50s to the mid-70s by mid-week. There’s the weather report, LOL!nnIf/when the sun comes out tomorrow, I will get a hike in in the morning. Very much so looking forward to it 🙂 Been a month and a half! Even if it rains today and the trails get wet, I will just hike the paved trail tomorrow. Either way, I’m going!nnOK, on with the day!
