Just a friendly message to you all to be safe during these winter storms.

We've been seeing how some of these storms have been making the roads with the pile up in Fort Worth, another one the other night in Arizona(if you guys didn't know there was a 20 vehicle pile up on 89A at I-40 just west of Flagstaff), and another in Tennesee.

These storms are relentless and unforgiving, so please be safe out there.

I have not seen any FX trucks all day on I-70 from the Indiana/Illinois border to Oak Grove, MO. That's never happened.

I don't discriminate. Nearly everyone hates me sometimes. Some never get over being wrong!

Jammer, I feel your pain! I am a Texan. My fellow Texans do not know what to do in weather like this. They sure don't know how to drive in it. It's always a joke when we get snow down here. It is a dangerous joke, but it is almost hilarious watching these southern folks try to drive out here when the weather turns bad. Fortunately this only happens to us about once or twice a decade!

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.
