Atten-shun!

As some of you may be aware, there has been an ongoing labor dispute (some call it a slow-down, others a full blown strike) effecting the port of Los Angeles. This past Monday, it got larger.

http://www.dailynews.com/general-news/20141118/los-angeles-l....

Here's what we currently know about Tide of Iron: Next Wave:

The ship Tide of Iron: Next Wave is on arrived in Los Angeles this past Saturday (11/15). As of today (11/20), when I spoke with UPS, it was still on-board the ship, but was slated to be unloaded in the next day or so. But that depends on the labor situation.

However, beyond the labor dispute, the US Customs service has reared its head. Our shipment has been selected (randomly we believe) to be subjected to 'intense scrutiny'. Others I have spoke to about this have mentioned that this can be a lengthy process (as much as a month).

As far as ToI:NW is concerned, we currently have no idea when it will be allowed to leave, much less when it will be able to leave (thank you, teamsters/longshoremen) the port of LA.

Again, as I get any news on this front, I will pass it along.

Thanks for communicating it to us anyway. Anything is better than being left in the dark.
