    I was hoping that foot of snow would have hit us here in Wisconsin and the upper midwest. Do you even have plows down there?

    Wow, sorry to hear of all your troubles. Memphis is a main hub for FedEx as well which could be why they went to TN before TX, depending on what other packages were routed with yours. You would think they would fly into DFW instead of Memphis though. That really sucks man.

    Weather is pretty bad here (Nashville area) - large snowstorm yesterday and ice storm in my area last night. I could not open my car doors today because it had a solid coating of about 2 inches of ice. I had to literally carefully chip out my door to open and start the car. Let it warm for 30 minutes and continued to chip it out so I could see out the windows, it was pretty bad. Then I couldn't drive until later in the day because I couldn't get any traction to pull out. It really sucks here right now.

    Well CRAP!

    Looks like FedEx doesn't care about overnight packages marked "Live Fish"

    The package arrived in Lubbock at 3:45pm ... if they would have processed it and sent it on to Amarillo, it should have had no problem being here by 7:00pm or so. Then, maybe I could have saved something!!!

    Now, the package will sit there until they decide to move it along, most likely I will recieve a box full of dead fish & corals on Monday ....

    That SUX!!!! :angry::cry:

    All FEDEX air shipments go through Memphis, regardless of where they started at or are destined. LA to Seattle goes through Memphis.

    Sorry to hear. If it doesn't say Saturday delivery it won't go. They got that weather delay crap on their site to cover their fat cat backsides. Sorry to hear about situation.

    FedEx FINALLY delivered yesterday (Monday) around 4:30pm - 3 1/2 days late! :angry:
    As expected, everything was dead - :cry:

    I emailed pictures to Shaun @ Vivid and he said he would call later today.

    What will happen next?
    Stay tuned for the next installment of this continuing saga.
