    I'm sure glad I didn't take our normal run to Philadelphia this week. Sounds like truckers tailgating on icy roads and driving too fast for conditions. I'm glad no one was killed and hope all will heal up quickly, but it's likely there may be a couple dozen truckers out of a job now.

    Slow down and increase following distance...

    ... please.

    Never did have too much nerve in bad weather, but what little I did have, it is gone now. I will park it "in a heartbeat". I don't care what the dispatcher, the shipper or the receiver might say. Years ago, I was driving for a frozen food company and they had to push 3 trucks off the yard that night it was so slick. We made it 30 miles up the road and went to a motel. Stayed there until the roads were cleared.
