Re: UPS shipping, weather, Canada
They're ground shipments, not air. And holidays aren't the factor, this was a specific notice related to possible delays from weather.
It's not a big deal, I just thought it was odd or even funny that UPS would use inclement weather (snow) as an excuse. On the other hand, they've been using anything related to weather outside of blue skies and sunny as a possible excuse.

Well again due to the storms many highways have been closed for periods of time and the going slow regardless. Also likely UPS was consolidating trucks to both compensate, and reduce at risk traffic, vs a regular schedule of trucks by time alone... full or not.
I have very rarely had UPS be late, or get such a notice, but get very little from or send to the NE in winter. But even with hurricanes along the way or here they have been on time unless the island was actually on pre or post storm lock down. Even then they (Fedex, USPS, etc) and food trucks were the ones let through after, though retail stuff and car traffic still not.
