It's illegal to drive in Massachusetts today after 4pm. I work until 7pm. Fortunately, the media is exempt as an essential service.

I saw this. Penalty is a year in jail and/or a $500 fine or something. In Rhode Island they're telling people to be extra careful and not to pass plows on the right.

When they first announced the ban my boss was in here with me and I was like "wtf, I'm leaving at 7!" and a few minutes later they went over the exemptions and you could hear cheers throughout the building.

People on my FB are going crazy. Do you really think they would even enforce this? It's just to scare people to stay inside.

I bet if you get stuck or something and the police come they'll cite you for it. The jailtime might not happen but I bet you get the fine.

this is all because of that snow a couple years ago when they decided to let everyone out of work just as the peak of the storm was hitting and everyone got stuck on the highway. Ever since then they've had these ridiculous over-reactions to storm traffic.

It's been snowing since about 9:30AM in Providence, and it looks like we have about an inch and a half.

I hate this winter. It's the worst winter since I arrived in Montreal.

They're saying 18-24 inches for me.

Same here. We've got about 2, so far.

Listening to CNN, if I didn't know that they were talking about snow, I wouldn't have been surprised if a comet was about to slam into the eastern seaboard. They're all but predicting the end of civilization.

We're sorta right on the border of some of the snow total regions on the local weather maps. So I wouldn't be surprised with anything between 15''-30''.

you guys be careful in that stuff, a few years ago we got 3 snows that were between 1 and 2 feet, but they all happened on Friday, and they managed to get the biggest off the roads by pretty early Saturday morning, so as long as you knew how to drive with a few inches of snow on the ground then you could get around just fine. but we also had the benefit of it warming up pretty quickly right after each snow.

Yeah but I don't blame them for making this call. It's a lot better than dealing with that shit again.

What do you do if you get pulled over? Flash your WBZ I.D.? Or the picture of you and Jack Williams that you keep on your dashboard?
