Hoho. Haha. Hee hee. It is to laugh.
Just make sure you can get to that bug out bag you put in the trunk. HAHA!
We’re in Connecticut. We got 3-4 feet of snow. We started clearing it around 6:00 AM. We burned up the auger clutch on the snowblower about 11:00. And I buried the ATV snowplow twice and had to dig it out each time. We finally quit doing it by hand about 4:15 with fifty feet still to go to reach the road. It looks like tomorrow we’ll be done, not that anything is open or we have any place to go.
It’s the storm of the century, I’m told, at least I’ve never seen a bigger snowfall. BTW, 3-4 more years we’re moving to Texas.
bet those obama electric cars work great to keep you warm all night.
Well at least she didn’t have bad breath when she was rescued.
Big deal. She probably voted for Obama. Let him rescue her.
Life's tough; it's even harder when you're stupid. What ever possessed this woman to get out on the highway during the storm? It wasn't like she hadn't heard about it; the news for the past two days has been wall-to-wall NEMO!
When we lived in the Dakotas years ago, the natives told us to pack a sleeping bag with a blanket, tinned food, crackers water, a flash light and a red bandana for winter driving. The bandana was to be used to tie to the radio antenna in case the car became buried in snow during a storm.
We left the year before just such a blizzard hit. The people there were deluxe preppers.
Another difference is that I planned ahead. If the storm had turned way south and hit my area, I would not have needed to go out or wanted to go out for a very long time. This blizzard was not a surprise. She's a moron for endangering herself and others by taking such a foolhardy risk. Why is she on the road, in the snow, with a warning several days in advance of several feet of snow?

How can those brain-dead writers at the the New York Times say she had no water? What the heck do they think snow is made of?
Listen sweetheart, watch the weather and stay home.
Well why didn’t the great and powerful MSM just plop Ms. Jones into their Snowcat and whisk her to safety? What, were they plodding lump to lump on the LIE looking underneath for scare stories to publish, then leaving them there?
Use shank's mare like our forefathers had to do, sweetheart.
Being a nurse your legs are probably strong as those of Charles Atlas.
Too bad you don't have his brains and determination.
You can treat your own frostbite when you get home.
We wanted to give people an opportunity to get home, Mr. Cuomo said. We didnt want to strand people at work.
Since the storm was going to hit the NY area earlier in the day, why didn't he suggest that State offices close, and employers cut their employees loose early in the day, or better still, suggest people stay home?
In MA, State govt. offices, many city government offices, and all schools were closed. Many other businesses closed around noon, simply to get folks out and home, off the roads, or give them the ability to do last minute errands before the snow got heavy. That contributed to there being NO cars having been abandoned on the roadways to block plows, so the roads could be cleared much earlier.
I'd venture to guess that ALL the major roads in the affected areas in MA are cleared already, and even smaller roads in towns and cities are probably clear. They didn't have to deal with getting around cars left on the roads by drivers who couldn't handle the slush, and diminished visibility from the heavy snowfall.
This is why Cadillac Deval banned driving on roadways here in MA. People are idiots.
at least she had minty fresh breath and/or a little buzz on.
I grew up on Long Island and we had similar blizzards like this in the 60’s and 70’s. Were people back then overall less stupid when dealing with them? Apparantly so.
