A Happy and Blessed Truck Day To You All

There's a foot of melting snow on the ground. The temperatures are in the mid-30s. And my calendar says it's February 12th. You know what that means.

Lincoln's birthday? Well, yes. But it's a more important day than that. It's Truck Day, the day the tractor-trailer pulls in front of Fenway Park (above, from earlier today), loads up the gear and travels nearly 1500 miles south to Ft. Myers.

The first sure sign of spring.

And to honor this day back in 2007, the good folks from The Red Seat put together a stunning re-enactment of Truck Day in the following two minute video, with appropriate music. Enjoy.

And have a great Truck Day everyone.

I hope they left some room in the truck for the Mayor's Cup. I wonder what happened to the CB radio craze?

Like most crazes Rick, it eventually faded. I'm sure the Mayor's Cup is headed down to FLA to be proudly defended...

It is the day after Truck Day and it still feels good. Go Al Hartz (driver)

I would guess Al will be arriving later today. Bring on the spring!!
