    In weather like that I never let my fuel tanks get below 1/2 tank. Can you imagine being stuck in that mess on the interstate and out of fuel?

    There is a Pilot minutes away in Evanston. The tricky part is getting there through that mess.

    Truck stops run out of fuel all the time in similar situations. Maybe for a few hours. Maybe for a whole day or more. Don’t push your luck in winter. Crap happens. Never assume they’ll have fuel or power or connection to fuel card and bank networks

    Officials had no trouble finding volunteers to help with `the cleanup`, but were having trouble finding enough vehicles to transport the empty cans to the recycling center once the cleanup crew was finished.
