LSAC takes 3 weeks to process LOR?

LSAC takes 3 weeks to process LOR?

Here's the time line.

On October 29th, I received a letter from my professor that she sent out a letter to LSAC.
I suppose it wouldn't take more than 3~4 business days for them to get the mail, so let's suppose, the latest, that LSAC gets the mail by November 4th.

On November 10th, I called LSAC to see if they got the letter. They told me to be patient and also to give it 7~10 business days.

On November 16th, I called LSAC again as 10 business days have passed. They said "We don't see any note on your account. It means there's no problem." 
They told me to give it a couple of more days and then if it still doesn't show, contact the professor.

Today is November 18th, it's still not showing up. It's been full three weeks, definitely more than 10 business days.

I'm biting my nails and trying to figure out what to do....
Is it lost in the mail? Has anyone ever had a case in which it took 3 weeks to get LOR posted?
How the hell should I ask the professor to send it again, because I really want to avoid having to print out LOR form AGAIN and having to mail it to her AGAIN, which would add two weeks of time with all thanksgiving brouhaha!!  what a bad timing... Can I just ask the professor to send the letter without the LOR form?

I suspect that LSAC may be backed up as the cycle is in full swing.  Call them and ask directly if they have it.  If they do, be patient.  If not, express mail the professor the LSAC form
