    I-80, I-81 and I-84 in the Poconos in PA. were shutdown by the State of PA, so the Milton, PA, Hagerstown,MD to Newburgh, NY (Also I-81 effects Albany, NY run) couldn't be run (lots of freight runs along those routes to the NE). Scranton, PA TV news link: http://wnep.com/

    Local did make a no-run call ONE TIME while I worked there. All other times it was regional Linehaul (based in Maui, I believe) that made the call. Not much of the frozen stuff happens here, but it does occasionally.

    We had four drivers run Jersey last night. Only Jersey. Four runs tonight (Saturday) to Newburgh. I was told I needed to run tonight. I wouldn’t if I had plans, and haven’t in the past when I did.

    Same at my place. If they want to force the issue and send us out went it's really dangerous, we make the call and tell them it's not safe to go any farther and turn around. After all, it's just freight, not worth your life or anybody elses.

    Yes, a degree in Meteorology (with a minor in Crapola), is required of all SCM’s.

    This is why I live and work in Florida. For the record it did snow one day for fifteen minutes this year at my barn. The horror.
