    I am parked at the TA in Greencastle, PA which is near the Maryland state line and I'm delivering a load to Hagerstown tomorrow and then picking up another load in Baltimore to take back to Wisconsin. I have seen more bad weather in Pennsylvania and Maryland this winter then I've seen in Wisconsin, EL NINO is playing games with my head at this point.
