Winter Storm Thor Wreaks More Disruption (But May Be the Last)
Another storm has swept through the southern states and is currently impacting the East coast. Much as Octavia did two weeks ago, Thor came in the night and left commuters and delivery companies alike to deal with its mess. Reaching for the shovels again, we've marched outside to look Thor square in the eye (of the storm) and tell him in no uncertain terms, "we're open!"

Capacity is up and running despite this latest dump of the white stuff, while carriers are shutting down in some areas, struggling to stay on top of the deluge. UPS issued the following bulletin to make customers aware that scheduled deliveries will be disrupted:
Severe weather in Louisville, KY caused a significant disruption to operations at Worldport®, UPS's main hub in the United States. As a result, some shipments may experience unavoidable delays. UPS is working to move shipments to their final destinations as quickly as possible.[caption id="attachment_2282" align="aligncenter" width="526"] Trailers line up at Capacity's NJ loading bays[/caption] One bright spot of this particular storm is that some believe it's the last one for this winter. Whether or not you believe the weather men and women, two things are for sure: the clocks go forward for spring this weekend and the seasons officially change in two weeks time. We're no softies when it comes to snow, but everyone will be cracking a smile as the sun starts to shine again and temperatures rise to melt all this white stuff. Until then, keep on truckin'!
