Lisbeth I thought the city state of emergency was in effect until 8pm tomorrow night. I didn't know the travel ban is on until that time to. Where did you find out that it is until 8pm?

2/8/2013 3:55:07 PM EST - This is a message from the NA Dept. of Public Safety. Gov. Deval Patrick has declared a state of emergency and is banning all vehicles from driving on the roads beginning at 4pm today until further notice. Based on this exec. order, we urge everyone to comply and be off the streets as soon as possible.
Please remember that the snow emergency for the city of N.A. will remain in effect until 8pm Saturday

Received this in my e-mail too

Pretty lame in NA-- nothing on the city web site--did you get a red alert robo call- explaining the parking or travel ban----so much for staying on top of things --pretty pathetic when you have the technology

Why should they be pissed---their combined IQ is probably 47--plan ahead--I have booze and butts-enough until Monday--what else is there?? Oh that's right the chicks from the massage parlor---bummer - my wife is home anyway---I was tempted to send her to the store at 10;30 to get some dog food--but she couldn't get her walker through the drifts

It was people bitchin' about having to leave ahead
of time for work to beat the ban and people stuck at work
after the ban. Most just drove... as the live news showed in Pittsfield. Hey Clark... Why the IQ mentions? You do not even live here any longer. What's your damage? Get your own f-n walker out and get your dog's food.

I know I don't live there- but when I left the aggregate IQ dropped 10 points---probably 18-24 inches--nothing figures in the morning paper-and with the drifting it's hard to say --half of EG lost power- but we're still good--75% of North Kingstoen to our south lost power--187,000 total in RI out of power

I havent been out of my driveway, but the streets are all open. My husband just got home from yesterday morning! I'm sure they'll probably have to go out tonight or something because the wind is whipping everwhere creating snow drifts.

That's why the DPW gets paid all the big bucks so that you can sit at home and post on Topix all day long--LOL--og and my street is finally plowed--but not to North Adams standards
