Im well aware that ice hits different in the southern states, texas this year is instructive in this, its not that it never freezes, but the road goes from rain, so salt and brine stand no chance, to frozen sheet pretty quick.
Our terminal is out of knoxville, tn, i live in indiana, i prefer to just go and stay north even in the winter. Its more predictable and pleasant

Trucking Jobs in 30 seconds
Every month 400 people find a job with the help of TruckersReport.
The one that really stands out in my mind is the time I was trucking through Nashville and some guy in a car was passing everyone. His car had a Illinois license plate.
He had a CB radio and looked like his wife in the front and two children in the back seat. When they passed me they were staring out the windows and laughing.
The guy was yelling on the CB about how stupid Southerners are and how they don't know how to drive. Right in front of the TA in Nashville, he spun out and crashed; looked like some serious damage to his car. Heard some good comments directed toward him.

The government could nationalize all private retirement accounts- 401Ks, IRAs, Roths, but…
There is a little over $35 Trillion in all forms of United States retirement funds. The budget for FY 2021 is $6.8 Trillion. That solution would only last 5 years, tops. Then what? The federal soldiers trying to steal our stuff will want to be paid ‘cuz we *will* be shooting at them.

You cannot just drop 2 Trillion $ into an economy in less than a year and not expect certain "dislocations"
Look at the automotive market. It isn't just because the chip shortage. The used car market is on fire.
I was considering the purchase of a new 2021 Chevrolet Express 2500. In May GM had a $3000 rebate on the vehicle with 400 available units within 500 miles. Now there are 50 units available in the same radius, and there are dealers that are charging $6000 over MSRP for them. The absolute worst time to buy any vehicle from a dealer, new or used.
We saw it all happen culminating in the 2008 crash. Here we go again.Mototom Thanks this.
In 2019 bought a 2018 Dodge Journey SUV with 19K miles on it for $19K.
Probably worth more now than when I bought it.
Here's an identical one in Las Vegas for $22K today. Marked down from $27,124
