We made the choice to sit the storm out. For Truckers, it means no pay, as you get paid on the miles you drive. It's a hard choice, the road may get better just a few miles ahead...well it did not for these truckers. So thankful we didn't end up like these folks..we saw more than 30 off the road! Too many to count, as Duane said we ran out of toes and fingers....Merry Christmas to all of you out there and be safe!

Tomorrow is final day!

I can hardly believe that it's finally here, my last day of training. I also think maybe my trainer can hardly believe it too! We left Eden Id about 1pm today, when the interstate finally opened up again. I sat hoping we could take off all morning long, ready at the wheel! Pulled into Salt Lake about 4pm, dropped our load off at customers location, and am now at the Salt Lake Swift Terminal. Free WiFi....we will take a new load from Twin Falls to Lewiston in the morning, and I will hopefully take my final test on Wednesday. First time I'm excited about taking a test...I will let you all know how I do! Roz
