Default UPS Closing Down Orlando and Jax Hubs Due to Storm

UPS told us feeder drivers(semis), going to Orlando and Jax we are laid off tonight. Thank god, I was not looking forward to the drive to Jax tonight or the drive back to Clerawater an the am. There was more than usual traffic on 75 heading north last night, I'm sure tonight will be worse. Glad they made the right call.

The storm shouldn't effect today's deliveries.

Apparently it did. When I called they couldn't reach the local office. I think they must of let people go home to prep.

No aluminum wheels or super singles in Florida, or flamed tractors. Is that a show rig?

Fl only allows 2 trailers, even though our licenses say we can pull 3. 28' tandems are allowed on roads that allow combination vehicles. 48' tandem trailers allowed on turnpike only. The 48' tandems wiggle a lot less than the 28's.
