Well, I saw people discussing that some mail was slowed down 3 weeks ago when the midwest got hit by all those tornadoes (MO, IL, TN, KY)  but didn't think about it affecting any town but where the tornadoes actually hit.  NOw I have had a book go lost that was sent first class to TN that week so I guess "One Bear at Bedtime" went off to OZ !

Don't get discouraged.  It could still show up.

I'm in a swap game, and we're waiting on a book that I'm wondering if it was delayed in Tornado Alley.  It was scanned in NC on Feb. 23, then no more scans until 3/19 in CO.  Almost a month between USPS scans, we were about to give it up for lost.
