New Look for the Blog

It's a new look for the blog, but the same old, tired content... Ah... I mean the same great content. Yeah. That's what I meant.

The blog is now integrated into our website. You can go back and forth using the same navigation as is on our main site. We've updated the blog look a bit too. You may not care so much about that, but I like the pretty colors. Hopefully, things are easier to read and more accessible. That would be cool.

Let me know if you care one way or the other

By the way, this is out 100th blog post!

Back to normal

It's still a little slushy around here but everything should be back to normal in terms of delivery schedules today. We do apologize to those of you that had shipments delayed due to weather. Fortunately such disruptions tend to not happen very often and not last very long here in Oregon. But it doesn't take a lot to shut the whole place down.

Now it's time to get back to putting lots of chips on pc boards. First, though, take a look at this YouTube video (<- link takes you to YouTube to watch if your firewall doesn't let you see the embedded version here) to see why we had difficulties getting things in and out.

Still frozen

As of the morning of the 17th, it's still pretty frozen here. The weather folks tell us it should be all cleared up by this afternoon, but maybe not. They also say we may have freezing rain tonight.Of_schem2_1

We had a few shipments that didn't go out yesterday and there may be a few again today that don't go out due to the weather. As much as we'd like to say that that such things never happen, they do.

We will do our best to get your orders out, but, as is stated in our delivery guarantee:

"We are subject to things outside of our control, like weather, which can cause delays with your receipt of finished product. These kind of delays, as they are out of control, would not be included in the delivery guarantee."

More snow - Maybe Delays

Sc_snowmen_cr

We are expecting to have some weather related delays today.

As you can see from the photo, the snow has gotten a little deeper - deep enough for a few of us to go out and build a snowman.

We have decided to not send our driver out on the slick roads, so for some of you local customers, there might be a weather-related delay. The US Mail carrier has already been here for delivery, so they are getting around. We haven't seen UPS yet, but hopefully, they will be able to get in and out for delivery and pickup today too.

Right now, it looks like we may have some weather related delays on jobs set to ship out today, both local and distant. We're expecting potential issues with the shippers and there will likely be delays at the airport as well.
