Well, I don't agree with Negs descriptor, that does suck a lot man. How close are you to the border, as in could you find someone to pick stuff up from just on the cheap side of the line? I live in Vermont during the summer, so who knows - we could work something out if you have no resolution by then. Course, then there may be taxes involved in bringing it over the boarder yourself...
Anyway, just food for thought. Keep us posted, and good luck!
