8:30am - Thursday morning
They just opened I-40 in Arizona and we are rolling as fast as we can to get through to Flagstaff in a hurry. Rumor has it (via the DOT) that when the wind picks back up around noon they are going to close it back down.
The wind is still blowing like crazy, but as long as they keep the road open, we're hammering down.
Really didn't expect to sit there in Holbrook all night long. Malcolm kept getting up every 3 hours to call 511 and see if they had opened it. We were parked from about 5:00 yesterday afternoon till this morning.
No way we'll be getting to Helm, CA before they close, so we'll deliver in the morning. And I don't know what's happening with the next load. We were scheduled to load in Stockton today and deliver in Quincy, WA in the morning. Obviously that's not going to happen now.
