With rain heading in, he should have used a large plastic bag which 
all cars are stocked with unless he was out of them for the day or he 
somehow thought you might be home before Wilma got home.  Maybe a 
supervisor put out a bulletin to the boards to deliver as usual until 
further notice, etc. since they watch the radar and all the package 
cars on GPS pretty well.

I'm not sure and I can't speak for any other driver, but I can tell 
you that the Post Office has left my mailbox door open WAY too many 
times during rain and got my checks soaking wet that I needed to cash 
the same day, or something was missing because a kid rode by on a 
bike and noticed the new NetFlix movie in the red envelope just 
sitting there begging to be snatched out, and those missing child 
support checks never came in after multiple complaints and proof that 
they were mailed by the state, etc.  I've had no problems with UPS in 
the past, whatsoever, but have had ongoing problems with the post 
office, and I've never used FedEx so I can't make any comments on them.

Anyway, I hope you have good luck in the future with the shipper of 
your choice.
