There are major nodes in the U.S. Postal system that funnel mail much faster
some places than others. They have different volumes, seasons, and
efficiencies, too. The one that serves Maine and much of New Hampshire is
extremely fast, but days are added by the much slower transport from the
node to smaller town post offices and then to rural/local delivery. The
fastest service goes to P.O. boxes in the node address.
Another phenomenon familiar to many genealogical journal, magazine, and
newsletter recipients is the damaged journals that go to recipients who are
in bundled zip codes (less expensive for the mailer). The unfortunates whose
zip code places them on the top and bottom of those bundles ends up with all
kinds of creases, rubber tracks, rips, and mangles.
I'm one-day-service from the regional node and got my APGQ last Saturday. It
can't be far behind, Barbara.
