(erielack) Blizzards



 
Ed, 
 
You guys upstate got throttled and you appear to have handled it. Perhaps  
you guys upstate can teach the elected compatriots in Scranton a thing  or two 
on digging out. Granted, Scranton is a much larger city than where you  live, 
but from what my folks up there experienced this past week, this is  ridiculous.
 
They didn't even think to put plows on garbage trucks. And they want us  
ex-pats to move back? I would surely consider it but not when it's business as  
usual, which is one of the reasons I moved down here to NYC. I got fed up with  
lack of organization among other things.
 
Imagine this past week if passenger service existed via the Cut-Off to  
Scranton. Hopefully NJT would have got the job done. 
 
Years ago, I recall the Scranton Branch after a major snowstorm. It took  
about a day and the Geeps came through. Even though is was only a branch, it was  
open. 
 
Are there any EL guys out there who can tell us how you dealt with  
blizzards? How did you get it up and running so quickly?

On the  contrary Walt, 11 feet of snow to dry driveways in less than one
week. Next  storm is due this weekend, BRING IT ON! Life won't stop because
of a few .  . . trillion snowflakes and some slightly cool temperatures.

Todd,

NOBODY does a  January version up there. The blood congeals and all 
movement stops until  May 30th.
