Bigger and Badder than the last storm. In CT, starting early Tuesday 3/14 into Wednesday 3/15 afternoon with blizzard conditions Tuesday and accumulations of around a foot. Boston may take a major hit. Expect great surge opportunities if you have 4WD or AWD, and good snow tires. Accuweather.



If pro-Global-Warming, that's the obvious reason there's a mid-March blizzard. - duh!
If anti-Global-Warming, it's a blizzard, pretty much the opposite causes. - duh!

Last storm there were no big surges because there was not that much demand -

I am going to keep my eye out for big surge on Uber Eats - I may do some of those if the surge is high enough

Wrong! The Governor can and has. Google
WTNH Malloy declares statewide travel ban Tuesday
Yeah, that's for those who are ignorant of the law.

Here are his exact words: "Residents are urged to make safety a priority and to not make any attempt to travel."

And from the Connecticut State Police: "While people are asked not to drive Tuesday, any drivers should reduce their speed and leave plenty of room between vehicles. Also, they should remember to put on their headlights, so their car is visible to other drivers."

There is no legal mechanism to outright "ban" travel in Connecticut.

LYFT will be operational - I plan to run Lyft all day

Uber is probably too scared of all the insurance claims from all the car wrecks from the buffon drivers who dont have good tires and who cant drive

Power Outages in CT.
On a serious note, each of the 3 power companies in CT maintain an online power outage map, list, and reporting web site. Google
ct outagecentral
(outagecentral is one word, no spaces)
They can all be reached by phone if you lose Internet access.

Plus there is a difference between climate change and weather. Many of the dumb people-read Trump supporters-can not grasp that.
Look up Polar Shift.

Charge your phone battery.
It makes a good flashlight if nothing else.

Now that both Uber and Lyft have shut down operations for the remainder of the blizzard, I'm joining DogSled Delivery. Transporting both packages and people in the worst white-out weather conditions. Going where the best 4WD SUV cannot. Our Motto:
"Roads? We don't need no stinkin' roads ..." :D
