    Seriously...this is ridiculous. I live in Vermont, this is a typical Nor'easter... I cannot believe that the governors of CT and MA banned cars off the road under threat of one year in jail...what is this? I think they are crossing some serious lines here...it's just a typical winter storm. You know I'm maybe thinking that this is just an excuse for the gov to start playing with a little martial law...see what they can get away with. Huh....this is very disturbing. Thankfully, I live in Vt...our Gov wouldn't even consider violating our rights like that.

    @haiku2, since you're up in the Green Mountain State you're far enough away from where it's really dumping down. In '78, there was three feet of snow in the middle of my gf's yard (Lincoln, RI) after it stopped where there was none before. We measured it with a yardstick. Life came to a standstill for a week.

    Haha, ocean-effect snow! 3 feet! But people prepared this time.

    At least Boston is stopping for a real snowstorm! Not like a big city with only 2-3 inches of snow!

    Population of Hokkaido - 5.5m; population of N.E. United States 55m. More people; more attention.

    I remember a snowstorm that had NY'ers riding snowmobiles, up 5th Ave..

    Right. That's because everyone knows that people on Manhattan keep snowmobiles stored and ready for just such an occasion.

    Some people might be literally snowed in their house. If my family and I did not continuously shovel out the front and back stairs we would have been snowed in. These same people might have lost lost their power.

    " Right. That's because everyone knows that people on Manhattan keep snowmobiles stored and ready for just such an occasion."

    Yes, some people do, apparently.

    Yes, New York is also the name of a state.

    Your "snowmobiler" site doesn't appear to list a Manhattan club. Obviously, you've never been to Manhattan.

    No, they were doctors, and it was urgent, that they got to work.

    I won't go as far as to say there isn't a single snowmobile on Manhattan because the place is likely to have one of everything found on this planet. But those snowmobiles those doctors rode in on originated somewhere outside of the NYC boundaries. And I would not be surprised if some local government played some role in making them accessible.
