As Dr Seuss says oh the things you will see

Well my freinds this is a crazy and screwed up world we live in . And as i spend my working life as a long haul driver i get to see a side of the world most of you cant see. I see all the citys in North America from the back side. Not the pretty side you see on tv but the real city hiding in the back streets and industrial parks. The true underbelly of the place what i like to call the swub. That means the soft white underbelly. So come along and see our world and the many characters that are hiding in plain site on your highways and roads. my fellow drivers and the supporting staff that keeps them going.

A Ray Of Hope In Arizona

The weather has turned out to be agreeable. Its stopped snowing and the sun has been out for a couple days so even though its not warm the roads are dry and dusty. And that my Friends is a good thing because these helicopters don't weigh that much so on slippery roads they aren't that helpful with traction.
I did see some thing Tuesday that made me laugh. I was driving across New Mexico and it had snowed and Iced over the highways pretty good over night. So needless to say the going was a little slick and a lot slow. About thirty minutes into my drive I passed a semi that had slid off the road over night. The fact he was off the road wasn't the the remarkable thing! NOPE. What made my day and made me split my guts with laughter was the three snow men the driver  made after sliding off the road.
Talk about taking lemons and making lemonade, that's a driver with a healthy outlook. He could have sat in the truck and fumed and raved or he could go outside and play. So he went outside. I wish I could say I would be that way but the truth is I would rage away and never get my snowman. Maybe I should work on that part of my personality.
