    After Katrina they had a donation setup for the victims, I wonder if they're going to do that again.

    Everyone else is jumping in with their fleet of trucks to haul supplies, our greedy company may ask for donations. Haven't heard much of what we're going to do, maybe we should empty the baseballs out of the MLB trailer and put some bottled water in it for Texas?

    NC is upset you're not putting the snorkel gear on and moving that freight. One thing with OD, when everyone else is parked due to conditions we're the only ones stupid enough to go out.

    Don't worry Billy, I hear you're going down there. Only Billy can handle it. Seriously, I hope and pray for the best for everyone effected by the hurricane. I just saw pictures of one of the terminals in Houston. Water up to the trailer's.

    It doesn't matter. I'm more concerned with the people effected by this tragedy rather than freight. The freight will eventually move. Lives are more important and the loss that the people, including our own coworkers are facing. But go negative Billy that's your usual crap.

    Of course they are! It's a major inconvenience to have a big terminal like Houston closed. Probably for weeks. We have a stack of manifests several inches thick sitting in the box in Atlanta for Houston, Brownsville and Corpus that we can't do anything with. Those are trailers loaded with freight we can't move. And trailers we can't use because they're loaded with freight. And we're short on trailers to begin with. Not to mention all of the claims money they're going to have to pay out for ruined freight sitting in those trailers sitting in the water. Then they have to worry about all the tractors that might be ruined or damaged because they've been sitting in water for weeks. Also, they have a ton of employees not working, who aren't making any money, and who might leave Houston and never come back, like after Katrina in NOL. I'm sure they're worried about the human element in all of this. They'd have to be monsters not to. Then what if those employees do leave, they'll have to replace them, costing even more money and time. Use your head and stop being so bitter.
