Truck Day

Gee, I hate to put an end to this weather discussion we’ve been having, but let’s turn to something more pleasant.

Al Hartz, the Tito of truck drivers. (

It’s Truck Day at Fenway!

The big rigs are outside the old ballyard, being loaded up for the drive to Fort Myers.

On Truck Day, it doesn’t matter which team you root for, because it means baseball is coming.

And it doesn’t matter if you’re a baseball fan, because it means spring is near.

And that’s something we can all agree on.  (I think.)

Come to think of it, this is still a weather discussion, isn’t it?  Damn.

    So, Truck Day is a real thing? One of the comics in the paper (the Atlanta paper) referenced it this morning and I thought it was just part of the gag. It’s my new thing I learned today.

  2. That’s the good news. The bad news: We just got back from Fort Myers Beach, where it was as cold as the chrome on a Zamboni. We’re here just a few miles north of Myrtle Beach. They’re predicting up to 4 inches of snow tonight.

    Still. I’m psyched. The weather will warm up and the boys of summer will be playing the best game there is. Soon. Oh happy day!

    Thanks for educating me. Truck Day. I’d never heard of that before.

  3. And. Forty two comments on a post about the weather? Whoever first suggested that there should be a whole channel devoted to nothing but meteorology was a genius. Will Jim Cantore be the first meteorologist President? He used to host ” Storm Stories. ” Now they’re calling them ” Cantore Stories. ” This very likable guy’s name has become synonymous with horrible weather.

    The Weather Channel pays my mortgage (and other bills) so we’re big fans of it in my house.
    Plus – Atlanta appears to be getting all the snow that missed Connecticut. Four hours of steady snow and it’s still coming.

    the day the weather died, when TWC/NBCU got rid of Dave Schwartz, that guy cracked me up, he was a good weather guy too. He had a cult following for years with the college age crowd.

    Check out the petition site, has a great intro, very fitting.
