    wow, none of these truckers knew better than to be out with empty dry vans on a day when the wind was blowing 80 mph. Apparently dispatch, back in Bugtussle, wasn’t keeping up with the latest forecasts… I suppose they just didn’t care…

    Whoa! Terrible! I guess if it is not really important, don’t drive on this highway. It would also be a good idea to watch and read news regarding the weather conditions before travelling.
