Stuck In Wyoming

So, I got loaded in Idaho yesterday morning going to Colorado. I stopped in Rock Springs, WY to get fuel. After I got rolling again on I-80 there was a digital sign across the road saying that it is closed 110 miles ahead due to snow & high winds. So, I found a truck stop about 60 miles further down the road in Wamsutter, WY & barely made it here. It started snowing & the wind was blowing so hard that you could barely see. I got here yesterday close to 4:00 I think & have been here ever since. Now I am hearing rumors that it’s gonna be closed another 48 hours. 

They opened it up before I got shut down for like 2 hours & then there was a bad 60 car pile-up. The good thing is that the report says there were no fatalities. I don’t mind sitting from time to time because it gives you chance to relax, but man this is getting crazy. I have done watched 4 movies…that’s the bad part about sitting at a truck stop for too long, you end up spending way more money than you want to. It has snowed on me here three times since I have been here. So tired of that white shit & ready to just be able to drive & do my job without dealing with that crap. Here is a shot of some snow covered mountains behind our terminal in Salt Lake City that I got a couple of days ago. Til next time peeps…

  1. So it’s been a while since I’ve actually been to your page so I guess you can say I’m “rediscovering” it now. It has actually been ages but “Hi!” again! That’s a fantastic view you have there – what I would give to see something so beautiful outside my window. Hope you weren’t stuck there for too much longer!
