    I'll show you in a minute.
    Went through iowa last week. It was snowing like crazy. I almost pooped my pants. But it was a friendly snow. Big ol fat snowflakes that melted as soon as they hit the pavement. But they stuck to the truck and the windshield. And it was getting pretty well packed in and I said to myself, "what would @Dave_in_AZ do in a situation like this?.....Oh yeah, turn on the defroster."
    So I did and, eventually, I made it home.

    Happy Thanksgiving fellas.....and that one cranky chick.

    I hope everyone finds the many blessings of life to be thankful for. It is right to give our thanks and praise. My final wish is for every table to be blessed with gravy.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone. :)

    And those of you who did make it home, when you say grace before supper please take a moment to remember those who couldn't.

    Who knows, cartoons were originally for adults, they played before a movie, adults thought they were stupid, then the kids liked them, now I don’t know.

    Was supposed to have a load tomorrow with 260 miles out, then 115 DH to next load that brought me back 28 miles from home loading and being back late Friday night.
    Now, the load out loads tomorrow, but they don’t want it until Sunday around noon.
    So, I balked, told them I no longer wanted it, I wouldn’t have a reload and be sitting
    260 miles from home waiting for a possible reload on Monday.

    So now we see the advantages of driving your truck, you buy your job, company truck would just have to go.
