I'm in Winnemukka, NV with a load due in Modesto, CA at 2100. Doesn't look good making it to, or OVER Donner. Yet, ANOTHER winter storm rolling through the area. 12:30 left on my 14 and a full eleven on the drive line. 0 hrs coming back at midnight. Recaps look good after that. Anyone else in the vicinity with eyes on the weather situation?

I am travel banned in Hagerstown, MD. I81 N is my routing through PA. But I am in the middle of a reset, so not too worried. One drivers on the CB asking for an alternate route "around the ban." several got on and put him on blast. His response!? Ain't nobody tell me when I can and can't drive, all y'all wannabes can * off." i hope the guy stays safe.

Just got into Indiana from Kentucky. I was due a 40 but it came at a good time snow flurries blocking sensor and can see about 200 ft ahead is all. Lots of trucks parked at the pilot off I64 next 92. I guess I'll have to see if it gets worse.

TM for the WIN. Made it to my delivery on time, actually 30 minutes early. Still have enough time on my clock to get to my new pickup in Sacramento tomorrow afternoon. 9 recap hours coming back at midnight tomorrow. All is good. Ran almost 2800 miles this week!

Made it to Columbia, Missouri for a break. Still many miles left until Ogden,Utah. If weather permits I may get there a whole day early. Not sure if Hershey will take me that early. But I'm going to as h*** try to unload early.

I'm hoping my FM took me seriously when I requested that I say south of I-40 during the winter, and north of I-40 during the summer. As a Florida boy, I've already had my fill of this winter stuff + frozen tarps/straps just plain suck.

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

I'm going to put it to you straight......don't waste your time hoping for such things. It doesn't work that way for anyone. You're going to have your fair share of snow just like everyone I'm afraid.

I can assure you they had a serious chuckle about it. Probably said something to the dispatcher at the next desk like, "Maybe we can provide this driver with pizza delivery to his truck and maybe wash clothes for him, too!"
