Winter Weather Advisory

Gol darn it anyways! We should be in Texas right now, instead of battling snow and slippery roads in the northeast! We saw seven semis in the ditch yesterday, seven! And we've seen two more so far this morning, and it's only 6:15 a.m. and we've barely been on the road for an hour.

Here are pictures of two of them from yesterday.

What do we have here?

Ditched semi #2

Ooh. I'll bet he's having a bad day.

I guess I DID get one shot of the third one, after all. This one
was really bad. The cab was pretty much destroyed. This driver
was either killed or hurt very badly, I'd guess.

Fortunately, Mr. Trucker is a very good, very cautious driver and he is certain that every one of those nine semis was going way too fast for conditions.

On a happier note, we finally broke out of the Denny's rut last night for dinner. We were parked at a truckstop that DID have a Denny's, but it was also within walking distance of several other fine dining establishments, so we chose.....wait for it....Pizza Hut!  Pretty basic, but it made a nice change from the usual.

Today's Silly Sounding Place Name:  Punxsatawney, Pennsylvania.


  1. best wishes for safety to you guys.... haven't been getting too much snow lately in TC, it is all going east.....

  2. If your luck holds maybe you will be going through there next month and you can say "Hi" to Phil .
