Welcome to the new USPS.......

I can not address your question direct.....other than to say the USPS, between COVID, machine reductions and general overload, has become 'unreliable' for timely deliveries and logic.
Samples
I get a package from China in 6 days.
I get a package, about same size etc, from PA, less than 300 miles, but the route, not an error per USPS was normal. It took 2 more days from Charleston.
here is the tracking:

PA to Iowa to AZ to WV?? A mistake? Nope the large commercial supply company that I bought from sent me a notice they got from USPS as to why ALL their shipments are taking so long. USPS replied that due to 'COVID' and other factors package routing is now very different today and the path mine took is 'logistics'.
Add in that all mail other than express and other $$$$ options can now sit up to 5 days at each center.
So a package like mine can not be called 'Late' until AFTER 15 days estimated delivery date.
Media mail has no time limit as to how long they can take to deliver.....so who knows where your stuff is.
Welcome to the new world.
