Xnw and xab face closed tonite
10 inches snow trees down still snowing heavy winds fos texted me we are running normal tonite
Well, that’s one thing they kept from the Conway days...run no matter what. Where are you out of?
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/
We never did that. Local mgmt make the call.
I'm out of the metro region
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.
Just be safe. Work some ‘magic’ if you have to!
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.
My tm called me at 9 am said I could go to xlf today called pa state police 80 west past exit 299 still closed running Sun morn instead
Another round of snow this week. Calling for 6-12 from NYC, most of Ct and Ma. Stand by....
Some manager's are part time weather forecasters. Telling us it's not going to really start snowing heavy until tomorrow morning. It'll be okay to run tonite and make it back in the morning ..holiday inn here I come.....

Yes, a degree in Meteorology (with a minor in Crapola), is required of all SCM’s.
Anyone know if XMI is closed today?
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.
