Sobering Winter Weather

Got a 630 am delivery in Watertown Ny tomorrow.

I’m from about 30 minutes south of there. You’re right, it’s going to be very cold in the morning. Watch out for black ice too

Hi all

I'm in PA right now and with the travel ban, nobody's going anywhere. It'll be much better next week hopefully and you can get your career underway.

Thank you. I’m excited to get going but I’m also ok with letting this storm pass too lol. I graduated cdl school back in March 2018. I was working for a local logging company hauling logs and equipment for awhile but it was only a temporary thing. I’m really looking forward to getting started with an actual company to learn this lifestyle better and grow in this profession. Stay safe and stay warm through the storm

Hi all

I’ve been on here for awhile just reading and taking everything in. Just took a position with Schneider dedicated. I was supposed to leave tomorrow from here in NY to head to PA for orientation. That is now postponed a week due to the snow storm lol. I’ll let you all know how things are going and definitely won’t be afraid to ask questions. Take care and thanks in advance
