Winter Storm Skylar sure did f*** up the mail around here, my regularly scheduled deliveries of L-Arginine (Nitric Oxide booster, keeps one’s muscles full and “pumped” much longer than they normally would be after a workout) and Glutamine (recovery aid) were shipped on the 12th of March via USPS Priority Express (2-3) day delivery time. Says USPS this morning:
The package is delayed and will not be delivered by the expected delivery date. An updated delivery date will be provided when available. Your item arrived at our BROCKTON MA DISTRIBUTION CENTER destination facility on March 15, 2018 at 1:15 pm. The item is currently in transit to the destination.
In my experience, since they haven’t provided an updated delivery date yet, I probably won’t receive the package until tomorrow. That’s OK, today’s an off day from the iron for me, tomorrow is leg day, as long as I have them by then I’ll be fine. I can imagine the piles of mail stacked up at the Brockton distribution center – There was NO mail delivery on Wednesday (USPS planes and trucks obviously weren’t moving because of the storm), and there’s been none since…Hell, two inches of snow in Georgia would cause the same sort of delay, we had upwards of twelve inches here on Wednesday, and the roads were impassible.
Stacked up with meetings from 0930 – 1200 today, then end of the week reporting…Should be an easy day, if a long one. Who cares? It’s Friday! I’m not on call this weekend (that’s next weekend), so on the spur of the moment I’ve decided to visit Manassas (Bull Run) battlefield after tomorrow’s early workout, will probably spend the night somewhere in Northern VA and drive back up here to Hingham on Sunday. Walking Civil War battlefields is an obsession for me, and I haven’t been to Manassas in some time – I’m long overdue for a visit to the Stone House and Mosby’s Rock. Shame on any Ranger who visits the Manassas / Herndon area and doesn’t stop to commune with Mosby’s ghost.
Have a great weekend, all.
