stabat mater dolorosa

schools and roads still closed; mail still not running in my county

Atlanta has about 5 million people in it, but it only has a few snowplows, so the roads are still in really bad shape in many areas.  This is the enclosure that will go out with orders as soon as I am able to start sending them out again:

Sorry for any delay - Atlanta, where I live, has had uncharacteristic ice and snow storms which have caused power and cable outages and a nearly complete cessation of public services, including USPS, FedEx, and UPS, since the weekend of 8-9 January.  This has caused supplier delays, meaning I do not have various bottles, boxes, and herbs I need to fill orders.  As of 14 January, the post office has not delivered or picked up mail in my neighborhood in 7 days.  I apologize for the uncharacteristic delay in processing your order; as a city in the deep South, Atlanta does not have the material and equipment to deal with ice and snow of this magnitude.  Please visit my livejournal for updates on current weather in my area causing supplier and shipping delays, as well as intermittent problems with power and DSL/internet http://karmazain.livejournal.com/85437.html
