Violin Watch – Day 7

Posted in Uncategorized by noceleryplease on July 2, 2008

I emailed UPS yesterday to see if I could find out when my violin was going to leave its port of origin.  I got an email back basically repeating what I had already seen on the online tracker and telling me to keep watching the tracker, as it should be updated every 24 hours. 

So far, here’s what it says:

Location Date Local Time Description
BALDWIN PARK,
CA,  US
06/30/2008 8:00 A.M. ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS
  06/30/2008 8:00 A.M. ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS
BALDWIN PARK,
CA,  US
06/26/2008 12:03 A.M. DEPARTURE SCAN
BALDWIN PARK,
CA,  US
06/25/2008 7:42 P.M. ORIGIN SCAN
US 06/25/2008 8:22 P.M. BILLING INFORMATION RECEIVED

Silly me… I thought getting the violin would be the easy part.

  2. I hate waiting on shipments and I hate thinking I’m going to get something on X day, only to find the shipment delayed. I hope you get your package soon.


  3. On or around 30 June 2008, officials of the Department of Homeland Security intercepted a package marked “Musical Instrument. Handle With Care,” while in process at a facility near Fullerton, California. The originator of the shipment, and the shipping agent, have both been notified of this interception for DHS Special Handling, Inspection, and Transfer.

    In accordance with DHS policy and the USA PATRIOT Act, you were not notified of the interception until such time as Department officials had completed their Special Handling, Inspection, and Transfer on the package. We are now prepared to confirm that in its current condition and location, the package contains no materials included in the DHS Restricted Materials list.

    The Department of Homeland Security will continue to maintain the highest possible level of assurance against any and all threats to our nation’s homeland. Your cooperation in these matters is greatly appreciated, as well as required by law.
