    Any one from over here in north jersey /ny area observe the weather? seems kind of bad. I know how the rain can slow a process down especialy a package distribution plant which heavily relies on a fast flow of traffic and safe non-slipery conditions on/in loading docks/bays.

    yeah to say the weather has sucked is an understatement. however, I don't think that it would delay shipping time. It's a lot of rain, but I think it would take a hurricane to delay the delivery.

    Only either major hurricane or snowstorm would delay your delivery.

    I guess UPS doesn't have the same slogan as the USPS? :D

    Hahaha. Same. I'm in Riverside. It was about the same. Hopefully the weather doesn't affect your iPhone deliveries in New Jersey.

    Only weather thing that affects delivery is snow, ice or a natural disaster.

    I think we'll be alright. I'm actually hoping for rain tomorrow so I can have the day off. :eek:

    Dude, take a chill pill. It's freaking raining, like it does 45-50 other times of the year. UPS and FedEx have an entire fleet of vehicles equipped with state-of-the-art windshield wipers. Why the hell do you think they charge so much to ship stuff?

    Then I guess that you'll be thankful that the box is insured.

    What if the storm busts a levy and bankrupts the insurance company?

    Are you crazy. Its been raining constantly; I need some damned sunshine.

    To answer your question. I don't think rain is going to delay any shipments. This isn't UPS's first rodeo.
