    On the prairie, it was exciting today. They ended up having to come pick me up. No more hours...

    I'm sure it was crappy. But I'm in IL and am off for the rest of the week so snow away.

    The snow in Oklahoma wasn't anything great, and most of it melted off the roads before the freezing. However, we didn't get x amount of trailers in today, at my building. I don't know if it's a few or several, but three hours into my shift, I was done loading, minus the air trailer which arrived 30min later (on-schedule). And the entire day was light. I was standing there picking my ass half the time. They're going to have to implement some sort of peak-type plan for Monday. We're coming in only 30min earlier. All of our missed trailers were from north of us.

    It stayed just a degree or 2 above freezing all night except in the Northern part of the state. Was really concerned about the black ice chances. Never happened on my run. Saw spray coming from others tires all night. Best thing you can see at night when bull haulers and other 4 wheelers are passing you....except the site of the center parking a lot at the end of the night

    Wow. I think on the Thruway, they are allowed to tow 2 53'ers. Wow.

    You cannot pull 53' tandems on the NY state thruway. 2 48's are the largest.

    Yes, the chuck wagons and cocky 4X4 drivers are always fun to watch.
