Down the shore for the week.

Friday my wife put in a stop mail order for all our names. We left saturday morning.   Apparently a few hours later the mailman tried to deliver s CGC package. My son ended up leaving Sunday and when he got home had saw the notice on the door about being unable to deliver Saturday..

The confirmation number shows it coming from CGC

Your package may already have been sorted and loaded before the hold order was put into the system.

Registered mail has to be signed for, in person, so effectively all registered mail is a "hold mail" until a person is found to sign for it.

Good point about it being loaded before the hold order got to them.

I've had no one home before for prev packages and the notes they left said after 3 attempts they would return it to sender.  I try using their website for delivery reschedule to indicate to hold it but I continually get errors when I try to send it.   I called my local USPS and they said it will be held.

Prob shoulda stayed home anyway.   Was fixing the framing of the crawlspace entry of my M.I.L. shore house and noticed a burning smell.

Looked up and saw the cable line casing sparking and burning.  Fire and power co came out.  Big problem inside power meter which carried the charge down the ground line Comcast attached to the meter box. Siding melted a little too.

At least it happened while I was right there rather than several hours later when everyone's asleep.  Then no one would ever be signing for my CGC box...
