I rode along with the superintendent's brother, Andy Hudnall. He's assigned Green River Road and the east side of Evansville area. Making his route one of the longest. "Probably take me close to eight hours just to do half of that," Andy said. Eight hours is a standard work day in most offices, but Andy is likely just starting a 16 hour shift, and it's a repetitive task. "You just keep working your way up and down the road and get the snow over to one side." We make a stop at a salt barn to top off the nine ton truck bed. Andy says he could go through eight to ten loads tonight.
While drivers are treating the roads. Dennis is tracking the storm. "See there's Vanderburgh County you can see right now that the pink is moving out of our area," Dennis said referencing a radar map.
He's sending weather updates to the drivers and redirecting them to problem areas. He says trucks will be working non-stop, but with below zero temperatures, the morning commute is likely to be slick.
