    Ha ha, ice storm shut down 81,80 and 78. We just missed sliding off a freakin mountain during it. Thats the down side of teams though as I wasn't driving and had to watch it unfold. Still made it to Roanoke though

    No snow just no freight. But I did go out today, went to MOO, then HRS, and then guess what... BROOKLYN of course.... I HATE NYC!!!!!!!!!! 2 Hours to go 20 miles aka ANOTHER 14 hour day... Seems like everytime I go to HRS I get sent to Brooklyn on the way home... And it robs me of miles

    Well after a stressful week I ended up having a good Sunday. Went to the fire expo and made me realize I miss it all so I'm joining the dept by me again, and hoping one day to finally go career! Still young enough for the next FDNY test. Was good hanging with old friends who I met there as they came from my old neighborhood at my moms.

    had a little Daytona 500 party as well. Yea I belong down south lol. And Dale Jr won so it made it better

    well back to my bid tonight, finally reopened. Going to miss running extra board getting to go everywhere.

    Hey hammer did you hear anything about them shutting down CRT? Heard they want to shut the mini hub and route it to PHI or NBR. it would make sense they are so close to each other. Also I got to drive a new brown Volvo to HRS on Saturday, really glad I caught the guy who uses it when I went in Saturday morning. Smooth ride

    Ok last one, just found out we are getting cascadias now... Driven them at CWF and YRC I'm not too crazy about them. I'd take a Volvo over them any day. I'd even take an International over it. Actually to be honest I would take one of our internationals over a Volvo I think, more power, plus less things on it to break. I guess I'm just used to YRCs trucks, I'm used to shaking, loud and beat up (nothing against them as I liked working for them) but at the same time a new truck is a new truck.

    Haven't heard anything on CRT but then again I don't talk to or listen to the people in or around our terminal (sounds like a high school ##### session most days). I did hear a while ago that they were going to shake up the HRS runs and spread some of them around. The new Brown Volvos are nice but I miss the super 10 in them (sleepers) as well as power mirrors (who the hell orders new trucks with no power mirrors?)

    Haven't heard on the cascades either, thats just dandy as we've been running a rental cascade for a while now and Im not a big fan of it. Any more good news?

    Well that might open more HRS runs. The truck I had Saturday had power mirrors. I miss the one in my signature, the guy who took it from e really really destroyed it. It's always broken now. I miss that cummins power. It would make sense to close CRT as only four terminals go there. Didn't know the sleepers had super tens, never driven one so it would really mess me up. I noticed that MOO has a white sleeper now, heard WFD does as well. I'm guessing those are the LHD trucks? We are getting one to run to GAF, two of our guys want it so it's moves me up the list, and a newer truck. Actually MOO has four of our new trucks we were supposed to have, they got them after hurricane sandy and never gave them back.

    The whole shake up is coming due to the LHD B.S. Hopefully it works out for us by opening more runs. The only issue I see with it right now is the lack of tractors, we don't have enough to cover our runs now.

    We have 15 trucks that can go on the road, and there's 8 road guys. 7 trucks are out of service. The rest are all city units. The city trucks run better and have newer engines than the road trucks

    One more storm tomorrow for us. If I lived in Detroit I wouldn't want to remember any nights spent there
