    Ten years doing this and my only rule about wet weather, icy weather, and generally bad weather, STAY OUT OF PACKS. I'll either slow down, speed up and pass and then slow down, or get off the road if it's too severe. I've been doing this awhile and every time I've gone into icy weather, it feels like a gamble with my career simply because of the unpredictability of people who panic forcing a dangerous maneuver on my part.

    My current strategy is to try and stay out of nasty weather completely by running L.A. to Phoenix and back, but if the freight isn't there, I may fail.

    It was 41f on a 2 lane with 50 cars behind him. He should of pulled over at 1 of the paved pull offs. Wet roads at 41f isn't slick. But you're right too slow is better than too fast. You have the right mind set W T.

    I think you may be going for a 34. In another 1468 minutes you will have finished your 34.

    It’s called rescheduling.
    If you can’t get over and get back, if everyone will do and they’ll straighten up.
    But there’s always that one that knows it’s not bad enough and goes & delivers.

    When the stores run out of food, and supplies, the people will speak out, and maybe protest!!!!

    Started rolling about 2.5 hours ago. Made it 81 miles and stopped for coffee.

    The snow and ice just disappeared after Midland and by the time I got to Odessa the roads are dry.

    There must be 20 miles of east bound I-20 full of trucks asleep. The TA and J at the exits are a complete cluster.
