Imagine Driving a Rig in Western Colorado This Week
The National Weather Service predicts snow almost every day this week. Since when does this happen? I'm just glad I don't have to drive a rig through this stuff. What about those who do?
One of our listeners, Steve Harding, from Western Colorado band Lever Action, sent me these photos a few months ago. Do you remember the snow in the high country last October? That's what you're looking at here. Steve drives a truck, typically out of the Rifle area. Here's what he had to encounter that morning.
The photos above and were taken at Sylvan Lake in Eagle on October 10, 2018. Personally, I could fly the space shuttle easier than I could drive a rig. I have no idea how people drive those things. Backing one up? Forget about it. Drive one in snow? Ha, ha... very funny.
Take a look at the post below. This gets a resounding "no thank you." The video was recorded on Highway 550 over Molas Pass between Durango and Silverton. Is it just me, or does the rapid-fire windshield wiper action seem a bit unnecessary?
Kudos to you, Western Colorado truck drivers. Thanks for all you do. Please be safe. Personally, I'm hoping for a good, snowy winter. Then again, I don't have to drive rig. I could walk from my house to the studio, even in the snow. Please take it easy out there.
