    Are all the LTL companies running there guys to the breaking point right now or are some of you all slow? Seems we can't catch a damn breather any day of the week and anything under 60 hour week is a slow week.

    Busy in the Midwest but we have a ton of fairweather drivers that are afraid of snow.

    We ain't had no grill out in a few months. The slow down is hurting the Costco burger budget.

    Would be a good time to get those mowers tuned up and ready at the Midwest terminals so they are ready for Billy when he is in the area this spring....

    Personally I’m glad, last winter was hell, I’ve hardly missed a beat on the extra board this winter.

    I dunno, but hiring in ATL during the winter isn’t a normal occurrence.

    Must be a lot of worked picked up because about a month ago during my interview they needed about 100 drivers and 70 dockworkers between the two terminals. And said it’s possible to see a new terminal in the area within two years.
