In 20 years kids will ask about the 2020 toilet paper shortage. I’m telling them that we had to drag our butts across the lawn…in the snow…uphill…both ways…dodging murder hornets.

USPS seems to be speeding up their delivery times, with some destinations arriving in less than half the time as compared to a couple months back. Chicago, however, seems to still be an issue. If your stuff needs to go through Chicago, you're likely toast. Anyway, it's good that things seem to be ratcheting up. I had a pack sent by "Media Mail" reach Hamilton, Ohio, in just two days.
