Here is a pick from I-40 in NC. I'm on the Eastbound side looking at the Westbound side. The trucks you see on the Westbound side are parked in the rest area.

They parked for that?

I hit that mess on I-20 yesterday. Luckily we rolled through in the morning before it got really bad. But I averaged about 50 mph from the Alabama line to Birmingham. The roads were still clear but it was snowing like crazy. DEFINITELY not where I expected to encounter my first snow of the season.

And Brett, TruckThat is actually a group of people on Twitter and truckthat.com giving Truckers a place to vent. It’s a cool group of people and I actually have one of their magnets in my drivers door!

OMG I immediately thought the same thing! Cuz up until now truck drivers could only be found complaining:

  • On the CB radio from coast to coast
  • In every truck stop in America
  • In every shipping lobby at every customer in America
  • At every trucking company terminal in America
  • In every trucker's forum on the Web
  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • On the phone home with family
  • Anyplace words are allowed in spoken or written form

If only truckers could finally find the opportunity to complain once in a while! LoL!

In case any of you are really new to trucking, you'll find that truck drivers are the most famous complainers on the planet. One guy told me one time, "If you handed a trucker a bag of gold he'd complain it was too heavy"

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

I actually live near Greenville. Made it home before it got "bad". Drivers around here are already terrible, any slight hint of winter weather makes them go crazy.

Biggest difference between a truck driver and a puppy is the puppy eventually stops whining

I share the good, the bad and my occational silliness and stupidity. If people here learn and laugh from me, that's what I'm here for. I got so much fom this site, I try to give back.

Had to go up to North Providence (usually 40 min drive) at 6:30 yesterday for a robotics competition (see my post in "Cool Things that Heppened In Your Day" or whatever it's called) and ha to go home at 3:45PM. On the way back, was snowing really hard and it took about an hour and 20 min to get home. Well, that's not counting the stop we made at a local restaurant for dinner ;). But ppl off the roads everywhere, on 295 we even saw a guy on an ATV blasting around in the little ditch between the highway.
