It finally arrived after two national calls where the reps saw nothing unusual with my problem. Last year fedex left a package on a rock in the rain. When called and complained--driver said there was some standing water on my driveway. USPS and UPS are great--never a problem.
lol.. Ups is the way to go..in my rural area i've had more problems with fedex then usp or usps in my opinion more due to constant changing of fedex drivers they always seem to be new and inexperienced on a number of occasions i've requested vendors to not ship my purchase by fedex however it seldom seems to work they ship with what is convenient.
