Yes, this winter weather is unexpected and uncontrollable. 'An act of God' according to UPS.
I paid for two day air service and not only can't UPS tell me when the package will be delivered - despite the snow in the midwest having stopped days ago and having stopped in MD last night ----- nor will UPS offer an adjustment or any sort of credit. Apparently being one of the biggest package delivery services is all they care about - and not the paying customer.
I spoke with the customer service rep of the company from whom I purchased the items, and she confirmed that UPS uses the 'act of God' as a reason that UPS won't offer an adjustment in shipping fees. Kiss that money goodbye!
