    If it wasn't for the trucks, there would not be an interstate system
    That's my favorite fact when people bitch about trucks 'getting in their way '

    There are two ways to deal with snow/ice. One is not going out in it or picking off hours when everyone else isn’t going and the other is giving yourself way more time than you expect to need if you absolutely must go out. You did a good job with #2

    There were lots of videos from that storm that looked like people doing everything they would normally do and those were the people to give shit to. Lots of innocent bystanders from those accidents tho

    I remember that conversation about southerners expecting there to be alligators in every body of water so to know the danger but this is the reverse.

    Believe it was Atlanta a few years ago. Either around a hurricane or when the same pipeline caught on fire in Alabama.

    2' of snow in one storm would shut down metro Detroit for a few days. We have snow days for a reason. Chicago had a Snowpacolypse with 18" in 2014 and nobody went anywhere from like Tuesday evening until Thursday afternoon. There was a CPD SUV stuck in my street for 24 hours.

    I've been in Atlanta for ice and everything went to hell, but it melted in a day.

    Will this affect airline travel? Gotta think big hubs like Atlanta and Charlotte would be canceling a lot of regional flights.

    Deal also completely fucked up the preparation. Didn't take it seriously and essentially did nothing.

    • In just five states the Colonial Pipeline serves – Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia – demand was up by a collective 40.1% on Monday, per GasBuddy.

    So far from facebook, I've seen the same guy blame:
    • Biden b/c unemployment is making all the truck drivers lazy.
    • Biden for Killing the Keystone Pipeline that would have helped Canada Export their oil to the world.
    • Biden & the CIA not stopping cyber attacks vs private companies.
    • Biden voters b/c they voted for a Woman.

    It looks like Michigan Governor Whitmer has blinked in the Enbridge Line 5 dispute.

    Michigan claims Line 5 violates a 1953 easement granted to cross the Mackinaw Straight. Whitmer gave Enbridge until today to shut it down.

    Enbridge refused, and recognizing the reality of what is happening with the Colonial pipeline in the SE, Whitmer appears to be doing nothing to shut it down.

    Looking at the GasBuddy map for the metro Atlanta region today and it is FUCKED. People who rightfully waited may be fucked if they have to fill up in the next week.

    Actually needed gas so I had to suck it up and get in line, people were really pissy and stupid about it too (i.e. not using whole rows of pumps because the first car in line’s tank was on the wrong side and the driver was too lazy to turn the car around)

    Also love how the lines are bad enough to fuck up the flow of traffic
