    U.S. mail has been slow for a while compared to what we've all become accustomed to. NASS can't mail out the surveys until about the time the season ends. Add in the mail delay and things aren't working out real great.

    It is possible to fill it out online. I got a call as well and the person I spoke with was courteous and was glad to hear that I planned to fill it out online.
