The state of Virginia decided to shut down i95 with hundreds of motorists stranded on it. No one can move. It’s been 13 hours so far at 6 am eastern time. No help in sight. Called the state police “we’re working on it with the DOT. The highway is clear with some ice patches. I can drive in these conditions. But I can’t move. Maybe they’ll let us go when the sun comes up.

It’s the unknown that’s crazy. Some bureaucrat deciding that no one has the ability to drive in wintry conditions. Hundreds of people.

That is unreal. Do they have any salt trucks to address the ice?

Most people in that area panic as soon as it starts to snow

And some when snow & ice is predicted. Trust me, some people have absolutely no idea how to drive on it.

15 hours still counting. No news. Slept some. My son just called. He said he saw on the news that some people froze to death. This is unamerican.

Thank God I had a full tank. Turned the engine on and off all night. My wife streamed Netflix on her phone. We watched a movie. Never did get cold except for going out to pee.

If you had one you’d be all set….. that is if you had an outlet.

Makes me wonder who is at the front of the backup and why aren't they moving. Somebody way ahead has got to see clear road ahead you would think.

Somebody's head is going to roll for this. And if anyone actually died, they will be charged. So sorry to hear you're going through this!!
