    Is most of the east, and south shut down? We are dead out west. Hope this weather clears up so we can get some westbound freight moving again. Any of you guys getting unplanned vacations?

    Tons of mty's stacked up in the yards. Out West we pull our end and keep the freight moving but you guys see a damn snowflake and shut down half the country.

    3 weeks ago you couldn’t find a empty in our yard to save your life, now they are triple stacked up and we are running out of space to put them. Guess it’s that time of year

    Down in Medford it was 73. In San Antonio at my girl’s house, she’s putting up with a hard freeze. What’s wrong with this picture. Oh I’m up in the Pacific Northwest. In fact it’s been a dry, warm winter.

    We ran out of empties in Indy last weekend and we've really not slowed down at all this winter. I meet Charlotte and they've cancelled the last two nights. I ran to STL last night and tonight I'm twiddling my thumbs.

    It's been snowing pretty damn near constantly out east for nearly a month, Billy. Frequently white out conditions. Power outages. Lots of accidents. Hard to get anything done when they're fishing 4-wheelers out of the ditch every 30 miles and top speed is about 20 behind the plows.

    Enjoy the time off and spend it with the family, you all know that when we pick up again it will be balls to the wall and at the end of the year when we look at our pay not even notice what happened.
