I need to order some parts for a project.   I wonder what kind of delay in shipping for a regular guy like me should I expect.

Have ordered from Mouser, Digikey, Farnell and TME over the last few weeks. Delays: "0". YMMV.

I just ordered from both this past month.
The delivery time was basically the same as any other time.

Ordered from Mouser ~2 weeks ago, no problem. In fact, they upgraded me to next day shipping for free!

I also ordered six PCBs from Elecrow.
It only took four weeks with their standard (cheapest) shipping.   :)

Slightly faster than I remember.

I had a small order with Digikey this past Monday (May 11).  It arrived in the mail on Wednesday.  I am sure it helps that I live about 2-1/2hrs drive from TRF, MN.

That’s actually... rather unimpressive. If I order from DK on a Monday, it’ll arrive midday Wednesday, and I’m 4500 miles away. And that’s with the default shipping (UPS) that’s free on orders over $50.

Unfortunately, there is a faction in the U.S. with disproportionate influence, who aim to kill off the U.S. Post Office by fair methods or foul.

In normal times, small orders would leave Mouser in Texas the same day or next day.  Recently, they have not been able to ship as quickly, but have upgraded my shipments (at no extra cost) from normal UPS to UPS next-day to meet their normal delivery time, which I find to be a classy reaction to an unfortunate situation.

Yes, placed 4 mouser orders since March, paid for ups 2 day, got ups next day on each.

About 20 orders from Mouser, Digikey, Farnell, RS, TME, JLCPCB in the last 2 weeks ... nothing was delayed. But I see some long lead times on some items that used to be in stock.

(yes I abuse the RS "free next-day shipping on any item")

So, I've just came to share this with you.
FedEx
Ship Date :   JAN 15, 2021
Estimated Arrival Date :   JAN 22, 2021

I wonder if it made a difference that I've ordered from my personal mouser account, not a business one.

Speak to DK support, usually they can help... I would worry how they will resolve the issue

If you want more drama, call local UPS and demand* some explanation  >:D

* and since you are not a shipper, they very likely tell you to f... o..  ::)

My recent experience with Mouser is as it's always been - upgraded shipping on every order (so far!) and fast delivery. No interruptions.

Digi-Key only took 3 working days to the UK, so no complaints here.  Ordered last month.
