    Default PA State of Emergency

    They keep breaking through the TV with emergency broadcasts that due to the blizzard Rt 476 (the Blue Route), I-176, I-676 and several other major routes are closed.

    Governor Rendell announced this morning that tractor trailers are banned on the turnpike.

    So why did we get an accident call this morning for someone in a ditch? Don't people know when to stay inside?

    Just venting.

    Don't you know that those idiots are 'exempt'????? Just like the ones with 4WD vehicles that think they can go anywhere.....they may be able to get going, but it is the STOPPING that is usually the issue!!!!!
