Phil reports that it is -21 and the work on K is almost finished.  That's kinda good.

We are done for the night. A few things to button up in the morning. Trying for a 7AM departure. It's going to be another COLD day!

I'm hoping that's all it is. Can't wait for them to get rolling again and get to someplace warmer.

It looks like the K is maintaining all of it's pain. Can't shed it.

yikes. Looks like they had an issue. Lines all over the highway and now they're limping along at 20 mph.

Lol! That shoulda been "paint". But pain is more poetic.

The traffic overlay shows yellow, so It could just be a slow spot. they seem to be going about 35 to 40

I was expecting a terrible time at Logan, was through in under 20 minutes.

Going to pass the time till my flight leaves watching a dot on a map.

Go back a ways to Church Butte rd. Then follow them back a mile or so. They were all over the road, then limped to Church Butte and got off.

I'm guessing they're in a snow storm and stopped to chain up.

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Hopefully they will send out an update as it looks like they are stopped for gas

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Looks like another fuel stop.  The 350 plus the truck rear end gearing plus tall and flat front in the Marathon equals much fuel drinkage.
