Ok so I’m driving out of Chicago at 2am Saturday. I went over the skyway bridge. After the toll booth, a double goes wizzing by me. In the slush. In the high wind. I see him down the road, his back trailer on its side, on the 2 lane with no real shoulder. Looks like a car may have hit from behind. Triangles are up.

Few more miles down the road, still no real shoulders, a blue car is speeding to pass in my left. I’m doing 45mph. She’s a young girl, I can tell because when her car went into a skid, and she was facing me, I could see the look of horror on her face. I did a controlled brake, no stab needed. She skidded back into her lane and lightly tapped the concrete rail.

So I hope that’s all I have to report this winter

Me too, but you did post it twice...

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Sounds like you are doing great!

Keep it up!

If you use a Medtronic pump and Humalog and are paying a lot for the stuff... you may want to check with me I no longer use either and have stashes of both!

I’m having issues with the sensors. Can’t get them to work for any amount of time. Had better luck with Dexcom. Talking to a rep from Omnipod now about making the switch, but if you have supplies just sitting there...

No sensors. Which were / are you using? Not using Medtronic pump either! Have a ton of such supplies. Which insulin? Out of pocket costs?

I’m still using the Medtronic 670G No complaints about the pump but the sensors are terrible for me. Some people have no problems.

The omnipod is tubeless so I’m researching that now

Never looked into the Pod. Was using way too much insulin for it to work.
