Is this a UPS or B&H thing? (shipping delay for missing the truck)

I purposely selected next day air (on Friday night) so that I would get my order first thing Tuesday (gambling that the storm wouldn't delay things, as I was unaware it was even going to happen at the time), and just checked tracking to find this on UPS's site:

QuoteQuote:
Edison, NJ, United States 02/01/2015 7:20 P.M. Sender tendered the shipment to UPS after the latest pickup time for the requested service. A day delay is likely.

02/01/2015 6:56 P.M. Sender tendered the shipment to UPS after the latest pickup time for the requested service. A day delay is likely.

United States 02/01/2015 6:17 P.M. Order Processed: Ready for UPS
Now is this because it would not have shipped on a Sunday anyway and UPS's system just flagged it to give me a fit, or am I looking at a Wednesday timeframe now?

I was all irritated until I thought on it and realized a package shipped Monday morning should (should being key) arrive Tuesday anyhow.

I'm only asking so I don't call B&H ranting and raving and wind up making a fool out of myself because it was for nothing.

Its saying its shipped now, which means its probably going to arrive when it should.

It just gave me a scare for a moment, as my schedule is weird this week so Tuesday morning was the only guaranteed time I'd be around.

I'll mail you if anything odd happens with the tracking, but I think (hope) its OK now, since even if theres an issue theres not much I could do since its now in transit.

As a FWIW, it looks like I'm going to have to call up B&H and complain - UPS dropped the ball here big time. My day's gone from 'productive' to sitting around waiting for a 10:30 delivery that's now 2 hours late... and counting. Tracking was showing everything on time (hilariously, it still is, 2 hours after the deadline) but no sign of them anywhere. :P
