Seed delivery woes

For some reason, I always seem to have troubles with online orders for the garden.  The worst of them was the crushed tomato plants, but the early and late deliveries have been frustrating as well.  So, that brings me to the order and trouble for the 2013 season.  Below is the package tracking provide by UPS of the first part of my order from Burpees.  This first shipment contains all the seeds and the other non-plants.  In other words, everything but the tomatoes plant and onion sets.  As you can see, it all started off well and I was expecting to see the package(s) on my doorstep the afternoon of the 13th.  The package never arrived and it didn’t show up the next day either.  It appears that something went wrong.  I like to picture something dramatic like the box falling off the back of the truck and getting blasted to shreds by an oncoming semi!  In the end, my eagerly anticipated garden goodies made a u-turn and headed back to PA.  So, here I wait,  hopefully getting a new shipment of undamaged goods.
