Snow today! Helper sure will be doing lots of extra walking!
The best thing about the snow is the when UPS actually uses the EC codes it has legitimacy.
It snowed here last week, gotta new helper friday wearing tennis shoes.... I told him he needed boot, he said he was good because his shoes had extra traction...
I had him for 8 hours friday
yesterday, he was wearing a different pair of tennis shoes.....
We've had so many drivers coming back to the building with undelivered stops- last night they had some preloaders show up at midnight just to re-scan everything.
Had snow, 2 stops and 4 boxes=13.5 hours! And I still have energy to make dinner, go to the school to watch a Christmas program, and enjoy life
It looks like it might be our turn to join in the fun this weekend. 8-12" Saturday night in to Sunday.
Is that what they call lake effect snow? Is it wet and heavy snow or light and fluffy? We had 5" Sunday but you could sweep it with a broom.
No---lake effect is in the western part of the state.
On the bright side something that big will make you forget it's snowing outside.
Is Inde invited too?
What really fun is driving in the snow with 3/4 worn summer tires. Its what we call around here "white knuckle sledding."
Slide safe folks.
All season tires. You'll be fine.
What is this SNOW everyone is talking about? Was 75 degrees today.
Anything over 10" is too much for me to handle.
Right on dude. It looks like you're getting some finally. Aren't yiu a little nervious to take 8 and 12 inchers?? I don't think that thing goes forever Dave but you'd know a lot better than me.
In your case, the other person is driving.
Damn it I didn't keep reading down before I posted. I just read your post and YOU beat me to it. With ones that big aren't you a little worried for David??
You could use some butter or something right??
I got this......
THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!!!!!!!!
We started getting hit around 8:30 AM, and a good coating before we even left the building. Good thing I had 240 stops, or else my little 800 would've been sliding all over the place. Picked my helper up at 9:45, and kept him till the last stop was done around 1800. Wasn't as bad as anticipated. Got stuck a few times, slid at intersections, and my helper walked through every puddle in the zip. Schools were closed, so can't wait to get twice the amount tomorrow. Oh yeah, time for a big Ric Flair here....WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
