I am hauling a fire truck, which is an over-size load, out to Baltimore. Over-size loads are not allowed to move on a holiday and have to be parked by noon on the weekday prior to a holiday. I've been sitting here at the Ohio/Indiana line since a little before noon yesterday and can't leave out again until tomorrow morning.
It could be worse, at least it's a full service truck stop with decent food, showers, laundry facilities and all that. There are a few other drivers also stuck here until tomorrow so we've been chatting with each other and generally making the best of it.
They are having a big holiday buffet here today, for an inflated price of course. I don't yet know if I'll partake or not. I do know that I'll be doing laundry later today, and doing a bit of housekeeping in my truck.
Regardless I'm here until tomorrow so I'm making the best of it.
