    Monday: Pick up load in Toronto. Temp is -06 and falling. Snow flurries. Canadians drive ok on snow. Rumor of big storm on the CB coming north. Canadian Truck drivers laughing because we are all gonna join the big truck hockey league. :thup:

    Tuesday: Leave Canada. Over to NY and down into Ohio. Hate Ohio and all 55mph states. Not as cold as Canada but dropping into teens. Got to get to the house. Storm on the way. Push hard down 65 and 71 into Kentucky. Need to sleep in order to get an early start. :sleep:

    Wednesday: Got up in Louisville AR. Storm in front of Truck. Sleet and slush and roads freezing. Made it to Nashville and then I40 becomes a sheet of ice. Wrecks everywhere. Nine big trucks stuck or turned over. Lost track of miles but it took five times the driving time.:crutch:

    Thursday: Got up in West Memphis Arkansas. +20 to +30 drove an average of 10mph for eight hours. I40 and 30 locked up with spun out 4wheelers. 7 Big Trucks on the side of the road. Made it to Little Rock and stalled out again. After eight hours the ice is clear. Moving good. Almost 450 miles in 14 hours driving. :bang3:

    Christmas Eve: got up in Texarkana Ar. +18, Ice, but 4wheelers are behaving. Went to Dallas, got lost, got found and delivered the load, Ran hard to Abilene Tx and a hard right up to Lubbock. More Ice 11hours driving about 700 miles. :halo:

    Ice and Snow and drivers who cant drive. Cost in time and stress unknown.

    Getting home at 9pm on Christmas Eve just in time to see the family after two months. Priceless :dance:

    Merry Christmas All
