Last week's weather presented quite a challenge. We were fortunate not to lose power like many others. The snow and icy roads were our biggest obstacles.
Our drivers performed like rock stars, and in some cases, walking was more challenging than driving.
Adversity reveals character, and our drivers stepped up without complaint. Our bike messenger even braved slippery ice-covered sidewalks downtown to complete deliveries.
Just as I thought Friday was winding down, a client called with an urgent request.
Due to a mix-up in the delivery details provided to us, there was an ever so slight divergence in the destination of a recent delivery.
My immediate reaction was "No problem, easy fix." Fortunately, the location where the package was initially delivered was just a short distance from where I happened to be.
I assured the client that it was not a problem and requested the new address to promptly rectify the situation. "The new address is in Government Camp," the client replied.
I clarified, "Government Camp, as in Mt Hood Government Camp?"
"Yes," they confirmed.
All right then!
I checked the road conditions and entered the address into my navigation system.
The drive had its share of tension. The closer I got to Government Camp, the more the snow covered the roads.
As I approached the delivery location, however, the weather cleared up and the sun peeked through the clouds, casting a beautiful glow on the snow.
It was a satisfying way to end the week. We take pride in assisting our clients with any delivery challenge they may face.
