If you're getting settled at home I wouldn't place any online orders anytime soon. I just had to cancel a dog food order and get a refund because FedX couldn't tell me when they would deliver even though my package has been on a FedX truck since Tuesday at 4am. Havent seen a FedX truck here in FF since Saturday morning. Havent seen OnTrac at all. Just a warning in case you're in a hurry for something.
