Wantagh is 25 miles southeast of me.
Screw you,lol. Have cousins in Savannah,But I hope they still remember how to drive in snow. Their dad was in USAF, way back.I worked thru the 70's to early 80's with big snowfalls all the time. Retired now and just laugh at the newscasts. No fun back then,I can remember just barely seeing the wires on telephone poles above the snow. Slow down,think ahead and be ready for the idiots.
I remember having 3 of us going out in 10-min.shifts to crank up a trailer dolly legs in early 80's in Allentown,Pa. The semi guys will totally understand. I was supervision, but I just couldn't send guys out there w/o showing them I was with them.(probably the Marine training)
Was 70 yesterday. 45 today and 55 tomorrow. I keep a light and heavy coat in my car. Because like our gub'mint, it can't make up its mind from one day to the next and is unreliable and unpredictable.
I see Las Vegas got an inch of snow the other day.
I had the privilege of following a snowstorm across Illinois, Indiana and Ohio last week. Thought I left it behind when I parked for the night in Emporia, Va. NOPE!!! Woke up to 3 inches and coming down hard!!! Had an 8am delivery in Norfolk so I had no choice. I don't do chains though. The west coast is off limits to me from October 15th until March 15th. The worst part is getting all that salt off my truck. Nothing gives me anxiety more than a dirty truck!!!
C'mon, a truck working hard has to be dirty once in awhile!!!! Those Ca. runs have to pay pretty good. After all day when you stop for fuel, you'll bake off the salt; at least on the diffs!(Ice road trucker(?) NOT, lol)No chains,ur worried about those beautiful 1/4 fenders!
I saw those snowfall warnings, I hope you stay safe! Myself, I haven't seen enough snow to cover the grass yet this winter.
Loads to California pay great, but loads coming back east, if you can find them, pay next to nothing. It almost doesn't make it worth going west. I hate the salt because it wrecks havoc on my polished aluminum. Gotta keep shinin'!!
Know what ya mean. MODoT1974-77
My wife's rig she is shutdown in Ohio
She must be planning on a lot of rain. She has a boat ready to pull the truck when the water gets deep.
Earlier this am
I'm pretty she would love to have rain right now.
I haven't run the coast since the early '80s (regional dry bulk hauler now, home every night, only bunk time in that big Pete when trapped by weather), but it was the same back then. Hauled steel out of Chicago, lucky if we got machinery coming east, most of the time deadhead to northern California or Oregon for redwood, nightmare to tarp, even with a team.
You can tell that thing is from the weather channel. It says the wind chill is 1.1. The national weather service calculator says with a temp of 25 and a wind of 18 mph gives a wind chill of 11.5.
I've been flamed for it before I will say it again. West coast is a consumer coast, everything is shipped there and very little comes back. At least anything that pays decent.
And in '82 when I ran for the same outfit solo going east from the mid-west, I couldn't get any westbound freight out of the northeast. I was a company driver during that era, would have gone broke if I'd been paying for fuel. Carrier I worked for went belly up a few years later. I did this during my law school summers, figuring I'd have a better life as an attorney. Ha! I've been back on the road for 17 years now.
Yup! Same here!!
