    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.

    My biggest questions is who in the area of Buffalo would drive around in a snow storm without provisions? We don't get anywhere near as much snow here in CT and I wouldn't think of going 5 miles from my house without what I needed to survive

    I think a good part of it is that people get lazy in their thinking. When they go season after season with no problem, they tend to relax their guard. Its a lot like wearing a seat belt, it has to be second nature so you act without even thinking about it

    Every year it's the same. People forget how to drive in the white stuff. Tonight's commute was a 2 hr slog. I should have worked until 7pm. I'd have gotten home about the same time.

    Oh, I really should fill my pie hole with some dessert and not say anything. Where shall I start? There are so many avenues to explore and speak of. I know, .... in the dictionary, guess where you find "Sympathy"? in between $hit and Syphilis. Right where it belongs. I have no Sympathy for many things. Those who ignore history are Condemned to be party to repeating it. "Depression" I am told is a disease. It's treatable with medication and mental healthcare. Hell, if you happened to be in the right professional union, you can get a medical disability retirement for the rest of your life and live on the gravy train without a care in your life. What the hell do you have to be depressed about then? Poor Baby! Get the flock over it. Baaaaaaaa. My next subject; "Ignorance is Bliss". Keep the Sheep happy. Lie to them! Control them, Keep them Ignorant ....
    Oh, BTW, I would probably personally be diagnosed as having AADD (adult attention deficit disorder). I have to go off on a tangent here because I just do (AADD). When I said, "keep them ignorant" and that in bold preceding it, it triggered something I could not ignore. If you are Black, pay attention! YOU ARE YOUR OWN WORST ENEMY! Everything I said in bold was applied by Slave Masters to control their Slaves. I am sure many slave masters abused their slaves and terrorized them and worse. However, the best and most efficient slave masters followed what is said in bold. Education is the key to breaking the chains of slavery. Ignorant slaves no matter what their mental intellect could be controlled. Your best and smartest knew this and rebelled against it by doing anything they could to educate their peers and children. They did this even under a real threat of death. For you to reject education as "acting too white", is playing right into the hands of todays "Slave Masters". The Government is the Slave Masters today. All of America on a Government level has been systematically dumbed down. Wise up. Seek education with a passion like your very life depends upon it, because it does. Seek out the best and the brightest and attempt to learn all you can from them. Form your own schools with the help of the best and the brightest. Drop the racial prejudices. Read read read. Learn from history. See the truth. Thus ends the lesson.
    Common Core, and the (Government) Public school system is geared by the Government Elite to keep you SHEEP
    Happy, Controlled, Dependent, and Ignorant. Ignorance is bliss. Don't be Stupid as well. Learn what they don't want you to know. Seek the truth. This country was founded with a great document at it's core. History Folks! Learn all you can about the founding of this country and it's core, .... THE CONSTITUTION. There may still be hope for this country, but it is not with the lying usurper holding the top office of this country or his minions.
    I have wound down for now. I am not even sure if I went where I started to go. I know I said many things I feel and know, and believe with all my heart and mind. WISE UP SHEEP, THE GOVERNMENT IS LYING TO YOU!

    Thanks for the belly laugh. I needed that. I so hate snow. I was born into that environment. Once I discovered Florida and the Gulf of Mexico, and Salt water fishing with my grandpap, I totally rejected anything north of ISR-10

    Just another person completely devoid of any self-responsibility. What a tool. Hell i live a thousand miles away from upper state ny and i know about the lake effect snow. I would think an overnight bag would be standard in that part of the country at this time of year. The only real issue i see here is the fact that chances are this entity will breed, what then?[dunno]

    I once got stopped by snow in an unexpected place, near Victorville, CA. just before Christmas. I've never seen snow there, let alone enough snow to stop traffic right there on Highway 168. It wasn't long before I started hearing the other truckers complaining on the CB. Comments like "I'm eating snow because I don't have anything to drink", and "I sure am hungry"!

    I sat there in my truck with plenty of fuel, a 12 volt cooler, a 12 volt cooker, a 12 volt coil that heats water. I could have hot tea, cocoa, oatmeal or coffee. There was enough food in the truck I could have sat there a week and it would have been merely inconvenient. I'll pick an inconvenience over an emergency every time!
