Watch yourselves out there people, it's going to be snowing sideways with the winds gusting hurricane force. New York is talking about 3 Ft, schools are already closed and 1700 flights have been cancelled already. Blizzard warning is up along the east coast until 4 AM Wednesday morning (Heavy C) stalk up on rations early and find a safe place, hopefully out of the wind. BE SAFE!!!!!! MRCsmile.gif

Thanks but that won't be necessary. I just got off the phone with my dispatcher and my run has been cancelled. Not on the road again until Wednesday. Now I just get to sit back relax and worry about getting shoveled out when this mess is over. To everyone else coming this way please be careful. This is certainly going to be no joke of a storm.

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.

Heavy C, glad to hear it. There talking 24" along coast - your area- there already pushing out cars in Ohio - hope Old School is running per his schedule. By the way, Yes, the daughter is going to the Biddeford UNE for under grad, two years, then Portland for graduate in nursing. Beautiful Campus, they have a Football program coming in and should be playing by 2017 and yes the town is scary looking. Take Care!!

I made it into my receiver at 0230, slept a little till the fork lift operator showed up, then got unloaded. I'm now hunkered down for the storm at the TA on I-84 exit 28 in Connecticut. Let, er blow!

All you guys and gals be careful out there. I got caught up in that first storm that buried Buffalo back in November and it was a mess. I got stuck on 20, in Elma New York for just over 36 hours and man was I ready to get the heck out of there lol.

I got lucky to be honest. I posted a few photos of while I was there, the driver next to me running for Valley was loaded heavy and had finally had enough of sitting. He worked his way out and made quite the path so once I slid over into his ruts, it was smooth sailing. Being in a straight truck with only 2200# in the back at the time, I was hurting for traction.

I will say this much though, the local law enforcement folks were awesome and a bunch of guys out on snowmobiles stopped and took orders for things we might need from a convenience store about 4 miles away that remained open. It sucked being stuck but good people made it much more tolerable.
