Flooding Causes Comic Book Delays!

road closed

In hindsight, I really should have known better then to go to my local comic book shop today, but in my excitement to get books I didn't consider the fact that Washington State and Oregon have declared a state of emergency due to flooding and high winds.


My comic books were not there today. They might be there tomorrow, but it is unlikely. More of a possibility is that the comics will be here on Friday or Monday.

This time I can't blame Diamond or UPS. This time it is an act of God. You know what? I can live with it.

After my initial hysteria subsided, I have become very calm and put my energy into praying and hoping for those folks on the coast without power, who may have been flooded. They have a hell of a lot bigger problem then their comics being late!

My comics are delayed and I am okay with it. Hopefully I-5 will open up tomorrow and traffic can resume normal flow. Then the UPS truck will deliver the books and by that time, hopefully the states in question will be back to a more normal state!

Have a wonderful night! I will be back tomorrow with an update.

Worse comes to worse, you could always read some of the stuff on your backlog.

Come on...I know you likely have some singles or trades just sitting unread *pokes*.

Hope your safe from all this crazy weather.

Where's Aquaman when you need him?

That's wild with flooding in December. Around here we have snow and cold like it should be :)

I know how you feel. Good thing I do have a backlog.

Nick, you have got that right! Thank you!

Heidi Meeley said...

Eaglewing, you do have the right kind of weather there! Maybe we will catch up with you soon.

Paging Aquaman...
