Wow! The Islands apparently have been hit much more than the Mainland has. Santa Fe is a big tourist destination, too, and we really haven't felt it all that much -- but, then again, you can drive here.
Anyway, I'd suggest that you call your rep and ask what the cryptic comments and abbreviations on the orders mean. Sure, Start Date means ship anytime starting xx/xx/xx, but A/R could just as well be As Requested as As Ready.
COD should be fine. I believe this whole industry is just too paranoid about getting their money. If you are serious about being in business, then you should expect to be burned once in a while. Just don't take it personally. I once had a banker tell me that I was losing out of making more money by NOT taking enough risks on allowing credit! Go figure.
