On I-90 eastbound in this snow storm. Got 2 feet on the road and a dumb ass UPS driver hauling doubles nearly ran us off the road has gone an got stuck in front of us. I 90 is closed both ways.

Doubles:

Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.
