I’m in Gary now but was in buffalo earlier with the rain. It was so bad I had to pull over for a bit. Coming down in sheets so hard I couldn’t see anything.

A bunch of giants, and a small Mourning Dove.

Found this beauty sitting in the parking lot of a great Mexican restaurant in Boonville, IN. Interior was immaculate too!

Outside a Costco DC. I was stopped in the outbound lane that guy was actually DRIVING INTO THE DC!

Dude, you can't be serious!

Haha! Auggie69, that's dedication!

It's also hilarious! I wish I could hear the conversation between the driver and the broker or dispatcher.

"I got the load delivered, but it's got a few issues."

"What kind of issues?"

Well, let's just say the sagging freight markets had a negative effect on this load."

"What's that supposed to mean driver?"

"Well, do you remember telling me that the current crisis is putting a lot of downward pressure on our freight load?"

"Sure, but I'm still not following you?"

"It's hard to explain, I'll just send you a picture."

Dispatcher:

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.

LOL! The one positive word I could come up with was also 'dedication'!

He'll be on here in a couple of days saying he's a dedicated driver and if we know of any companies that will hire him with one tiny incident.
