I'm pretty sure that when your talking Massachusetts, that group includes practically every man, woman and child.
Those cars abandoned on the highway should suffer whatever dings a ten wheel salt truck w/plow might effect.
In this case, those cars would amount to several narrow parking lots, hundreds of miles long. Personally, I'd like to see them callously shoved into the ditches.
It looks like Connecticut is also having a travel ban and may take up to ten days to restore the roads. They are using front-loader based fork-lifts to pick up the cars and set them out of the way.
CT’s Gov. Malloy is a liiberal clone of Patrick, Cuomo, Bloomberg, et al. I was out on CT roads yesterday, along with others who were going cautiously about the businessof “living.” There was some snow on the road...NEWs FLASH...it’s CT in Feb! It was really not the crippling crisis that the media make it out as.
Your description of some traffic apocalypse with blockages hundreds of miles long is not accurate and that’s exactly my point. People are not as foolish as the state would have us believe. We do not need their agents to convince us that it’s not fun to be stuck in a snow bank in 20 degree weather. For heaven’s sake, how did we ever manage to climb, stone by stone from the paleolithic cave fire, to the computer age, without some bureaucratic Nanny scolding us, “Put on your hat and gloves when going out to shovel snow.” My response is now “Shut up fool!”
