I think this is just a ruse so the government can move in the tanks and put the gun batteries in place for the UN takeover.

Axel_Gear: Wow way to be overly dramatic. Its just Boston dude. You would think that new england turned into ice planet hoth or something.

I think a few people here watched "The Day After Tomorrow" one too many times.  For those of you in Texas or California, there's these things called "coats" and "hats" and us northerners put them on to keep warm in the snow.

Utilities reported about 40,000 power outages this evening as winds downed tree limbs and wires.

It's times like this when huddled together in a cold dark house with the wind howling and the snow piling up outside that one starts to regret protesting the city's attempt to cut down the tree banches in front of your house that were intertwined in the overhead power cables back in September.

Lsherm: OtherLittleGuy: If only there was a way to get around without cars, buses, or any motorized forms of transportation....

You can't walk in 24 inches of snow, especially not during blizzard conditions.  Technically you can, but it would take you an hour to get a 1/4 mile provided you actually lived that long.

Agatha Crispy: Wow, you sound just like John Wayne. Except for the one plow thing. And wearing snowboard gear around the beach. And making spinach. But other than those things, the 'suck it up nancies' part really put some hair on your chest.

To be fair, John Wayne was a huge fake. So... yeah, actually, he does sound like John Wayne.

I like how Massachusetts threatens drivers there with arrest if they go out after 4PM, while just north in New Hampshire, the big story in the media is that the state Liquor Stores are only staying open until 6PM today, and hey, the governor asks could everybody please plan to be off the roads by 7PM?  No rush, use your best judgment.

Makes sense to me; once you can no longer buy a bottle of hard liquor, there's nowhere else to drive to in NH.

Anything that keeps the morons off the road. Dropping my wife off in New Jersey today, there was an idiot basically driving sideways down the ramp. He was stuck in the slush at the side of the road, and every time he started to straighten up, he'd jam on the gas and start fish tailing. Then he'd hit the brakes, slide, straighten and repeat. We crawled past him way over on the shoulder and left him behind.

/I figure he's just about made it to the Montvale service area by now. If he's not dead

I got stuck with my neighbor's kids when their nanny bailed around 2 this afternoon. My neighbor got stuck doing a surgery @ 5 and promised to be home by 7. At this point he better risk it and drive home. This is really cutting into my drinking time...

mark12A: Dontcha think people know better than to drive out in a blizzard unless it was a real farkin' emergency?

Consider how dumb the average American is.  Now consider that roughly half the population is even dumber than that.  Seriously, folks, if you're on the road under these conditions, you're getting in the way of emergency vehicles, even if you don't end up one more

I'm hunkering down with a few friends. We were making a last minute trip to the liquor store around 1:00, and the owner was just walking out the door, but actually came back and opened the place back up to sell us some stuff. It's nice how the whole community comes together to support each other in times like these.

p the boiler: skinink: Before Hurricane Sandy had landed, I called an older relative to ask him if he had stocked up on food and supplies in case of an emergency. No lie, he said he didn't know a hurricane was coming because he didn't listen to the news (he's also retired but not senile). He had to rush out at the last minute to get some things.

I'm fully expecting him to be arrested today because he didn't listen to the news and  is unaware there is no driving after 4pm, but was out driving regardless.

so... did you call him to warn him?

Everybody gets one.  He already got his.
