I am holed up in a hotel in York, NE. I will be delivering over in Lincoln, NE tomorrow morning but in the interim I am trying to stay inside, slug down Nyquil, and try to get over this damn cold.
I've been battling this cold for nearly a week now and I think it has hit it's peak now. I spent a lot of last night coughing and blowing my nose despite the Nyquil. It was the worst night since I started having cold symptoms. Hopefully I am on the downhill side of this thing now.
I had planned to check out of the hotel this morning but after last night I have decided to remain here another night, take more Nyquil, and try to get to feeling better before tomorrow. It's a lot easier to rest in a hotel room than in a truck.
Besides, the APU on my truck is not putting out any electricity at the moment. I know what's wrong, the big filter capacitor is fried, and I have a spare part as it's a common failure, but just don't feel up to opening the thing up and replacing the capacitor right now.
On the up side, I am only about 45 miles away from where I have to deliver, so I am pretty much where I need to be for tomorrow. For now I plan to just rest, take Nyquil, and hopefully get over the worst of this thing.
