Like a visiting brother-in-law who doesn't realize he's overstayed his welcome, a giant "winter" storm is blowing through the Midwest this week bringing blizzard conditions with winds of 40-50 mph, record snowfall of 10-15 inches, and more flooding as warming weather melts off what this storm deposits.

Great! I was looking at the weather this morning doing a trip plan. In Billings, MT. Have a 0900 live unload. Had a pick up scheduled in Worland, WY for 0900 tomorrow, heading to Hazelwood, MO. Got a QC msg yesterday afternoon that it was pushed to Friday am. Will need to do a forced 34. Maybe it is for the better. I had some real good recaps coming back too. So goes the Trucking business. I'm not going to complain about it though, as Brett would tell me, "TOUGHEN UP, BUTTERCUP!!!

Good thing I have some firewood left over. Never used my woodstove this late in the spring. Got it going today.

Yes Sir, that's the one. Give me a heads up. Did they load you in a timely fashion? The place is in the middle of BFE! Well........Wyoming and BFE are interchangeable.

I don't know about the loading time, I relayed it out of Denver to Hazlewood. unload time was very nice though, I was the first appointment of the day, out of there in under an hour
