72 to 11 in Three Days

Switched back to insulated Carhartt bib overalls, double socks and an extra sweatshirt. The temperature was 72°F when we left Central Florida Tuesday; it's 11°F where we're parked in East-Central Illinois this morning.

Left Southaven, Mississippi at Midnight Thursday and ran straight into the leading edge of a ice/snow storm headed eastbound out of Texas and Oklahoma. Drove on accumulating ice for sixty miles along I-55-N in Northern Arkansas and Southern Missouri. Came upon a two-car accident on top of an overpass and a single-car slide-off past another overpass.

Continuing north to Green Bay, Wisconsin at 10:00 PM tonight. Hopeful to make safe delivery at Procter & Gamble around 4:30 AM CST Saturday morning.
