Re: USPS policy?
I had some eggs in transit in the middle of the blackout. They were shipped
from Hawaii and must have gone thru the NYC airports to reach me in upstate
NY. Normally , they would have taken 4-5 days. They arrived today .....
taking 8. The majority still look OK. I think this was the best I could
have hoped for.
