We are parked in Oklahoma City at a truckstop. I stopped here to fuel (in the trucking world, we don't "buy gas", we "get fuel") and noticed that the rain had frozen on my handhold as I got down from the truck. Then another truck pulled in beside me and it was encased in a coating of ice. When I asked where he had come from, he replied, "Amarillo". This is of course, the way we are heading. I have driven this stretch several times and know that there really isn't much between here and there, so made the decision to stop. The weather seems to indicate that this will pass through fairly quickly and go on to bedevil the eastern portion of the country. It is still dark now, but I have found that weather often tends to get a little better once it is daylight. Maybe it is just easier for me to deal with.
Anyway, we are heading out to California - LA area. We have a decent arrival time on this one, don't have to deliver until 8:00 a.m. on Monday. We had hoped to sneak into LA and be at our drop site on Sunday night - may not make it now.
Our new truck is great - roomy and nice to drive. As soon as I get the hang of this, I'll post pictures as well.
