    I went through Ft.Worth late Thursday night.Me and 3 other trucks took 287 all the way from I 45 to the north west side of Ft.Worth.We stayed 500 feet apart and drove 35-40 mph all the way.I thought about chaining up but there was no good place to pull over,the on-off ramps were really bad.
    I just wanted to get past Ft.Worth and not wait for the morning traffic.
    I have Michelin super single drives,winter rated,and we run to Canada and Alaska.
    I wish I would have chained up just to say I chained up to get through DFW.

    I've never had a week like last week
    Monday did a local load and then bobtailed out of Chicago just ahead of the storm to Detroit the weather caught me on my 10, bobtailed another hr in the crap tue morning
    Then it was toledo, Cleveland and down to Louisville. Every day was horse poop.
    Louisville was a drop, because they shut the plant down from the ice storm. Friday I bobtailed back to Chicago. I've drove in plenty of winter storms but never every day of the week

    I left Sulfur Springs, TX at 2am on Thursday. It was the only time since the afternoon before i-30 westbound into Dallas, TX didn't have at least a 2 hour delay.

    Sure glad I did the night run. It was still a bit hairy, especially leaving Fort Worth. Nothing but ice on the road. I can't imagine what that all looked like come rush hour.

    I ended up on 281 at the Chevron in Springtown.I spent the night there then chained up in the morning, drove west about 45 minutes until the road started to thaw out then took the chains off.

    As truckers, even I don't have faith in other truckers to get the job done. Regular customers don't even know half the story of why goods show up late. As far as Amazon goes, I stick to ebay or a small retailer that's relatively close by if it needs to be ordered. Stay away from any Amazon ordering.
