Snowstorms do cause problems for trucking companies. I'm a mechanic for a foodservice company and we have had serious problems with some deliveries, trucks getting stuck, etc. There are only so many tow trucks available if a driver gets stuck and sometimes the wait is 4 hours or longer. A driver can only be on duty for so many hours a day and then he has to lay over. Canada has similar hours of service rules as we do. An average tow call out is $300 and can be $500 at night. Residential deliveries will take a back seat to business customers.

Yeah, even if the shipment got into their warehouse, they could well have been behind on a whole ton of stuff.
