    ...they cancelled the sort. Snow day!

    (Actually I'm still "on call" for Twilight, but it's supposed to stay heavy until this evening, and the roads are atrocious).

    www.ups.com is listing zip codes in VA, DC, MD, DE, and PA that have NO service. Where I live is included but not where I deliver. Thursday is going to be a bear.

    I know an employee there who was told business as usual, got stuck and waited 5 hours for a towtruck. Even 2 firefighters in an ambulance got stuck trying to help. Did the Sup even say thanks for trying? NOPE Did they care that the employee worked 16 hrs the day before? NOPE I'd love to see some of upper management on that new show about undercover bosses!!!

    I wish you guys in the north would get your act together. You are causing problems down here in the sunny, but cold south. I would hate to have to come up there and show ya'all how to go in the snow.:happy-very:

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    We have missed both storms but are beginning to feel the effects operations wise. We had late air both yesterday and today and the rumor is that 40% of our dispatched loads may not make it in tomorrow.

    The Farmer's Almanac says it will be our turn here in a couple of weeks.
     
  9. Same happened here when we got the first round on the weekend. Monday I only got like 200 pieces. Sure enough yesterday I was bricked out with over 410 pieces. I brought back 30-35 EMCs. Can't wait for tomorrow.

    Just an update, BURMD cancelled Day, Twilight, and Night Hubs. One of my co-workers who's been in BURMD for 20+ years said he's only seen this happen once before. Basically, the snow was coming really heavy during the morning so that put the kibosh on the Day Hub commute (I got stuck a couple times just driving around the block). The snow persisted into the evening, and the roads were already bad from the weekend blizzard, so there was little hope of an acceptable cleanup in time for the evening and nighttime commutes.

    Word is Day Hub will start at 1100 EST. Can't wait for some package handlin' (I'm a PTSup).
