I looked out my window this morning to see this:


Yeah screw this. I don’t want it this year. 😂😂😂😂

I’m in a tiny town called Culbertson, MT, right now waiting to make a delivery. Don’t know where I’m going next. Where’s everyone at?

(Yes I know I’m late to the party but this is my first snow this year)

No snow for me yet, but quite a bit of rain lately.

Flatbedders thrive in snow, lol

I do not miss OTR during the winter.

My company grounds the entire fleet when it snows here. NC is not known for dealing with snow on it's roads well. To risky having fuel tankers on the road in that mess.


Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Week before last I was heading east over I-70 and ran in snow going over Vail and Eisenhower. East of Eisenhower had a fair amount of snow on the road for about 15 miles or so. Then I got out of it into rain all the way to Denver.


Having lived in eastern Montana for 15 years, I can tell you that it's time for snow. Sometimes it does melt off for a few weeks, but it pretty much is the season starting in October.

Smart PJ,

I agree 100% so my daughter in Maryland doesn't see us until spring thru autumn. No more driving north during the winter.

This thread popped into my mind today because of the “white stuff”. I drove north on I55 today through the cotton area of Missouri. Harvest is underway, but there still is a lot of “white stuff “ in the fields. The one time I looked at the outside temp reading it was at 84 degrees. Not hard to imagine all those cotton fields as snow. I can tolerate that type of white stuff, but I’m sure I’ll get my share of the other type. And the daylight is rapidly diminishing. Dark at 0630 this afternoon. Ominous!
