From a report about the drivers trapped in their vehicles during the snowstorm in upper state NY (where they should be accustomed to the dangers) "Martin said that when he trundled down the highway well before dawn on Tuesday, the only warning signs he saw suggested the roads would not be impassable until 6 p.m. He noticed the snow was coming down hard as he drove past an Angola, New York, rest stop, and when his GPS showed heavy traffic up ahead, he decided to get off at the next exit. “But it was buried in snow and had not been plowed and I did not want to get stuck there, so I kept going forward and there were people in front of me, and it slowed down a little bit, and then it just stopped,” he said. He had only a little water and some trail mix and was stunned that no "humanitarian aid" got to him. "They’re bragging about the granola bars they were supplying, but they never brought any around to me,” he said. He recalled his incredulity while listening to a live press conference in which officials said anyone who got stuck had been offered one opportunity to get out. “Never happened,” he said.
