Much to my dismay, my load being picked up in the morning is going to Auburn, WA. Routing has me taking I-94 across to where it joins 90 and then 90 over into WA. Told dispatch there was no way I wanted to drop down to 80 given the mess moving through there.

Just wondering how the roads are looking....?

I have never seen 90 worse than 80. I came through yesterday and only ran into slick roads from Big Timber to Livingston. About 55 miles. The rest was dry or wet.

Just finished driving from Fargo, ND and parked at Flyin J in Belgrade MT. Roads were in great shape. Had light snow flurries just east of Billings and from Livingston to Belgrade.

I am with Pat I have never seen 90 as bad as 80. The snow for the most part seams dryer up there then down on the 80. I went thought 90 in WA last week snowqaulimy pass has been being closed at night for road work Wednesday thought Sunday, from 2300 to 0500 so check on that. There was also thick freezing fog in the mornings from clu elum to past ritzville. Also there is vary little parking in Seattle area if you company has a tuminal I would try to stay there. What parking there is, is tight and pay for. I usually try to go in and out and not stay, but that's up to you.

I second the parking situation. Thankfully swift has a terminal in Sumner, WA so I don't have to worry about parking. The only place there is a dump and chaos 24/7 haha.

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'm a few hours ahead of you! Parked in Jamestown, ND currently and hoping the roads and weather remain great for the rest of my trip!
