    I was a little disappointed that we shut down just because I thought we could get something done. But really, if a vehicle becomes stranded with the engine shut down, we could easily have seen more deaths in the area.

    My brother lives in Princeton and said his car wouldn’t start Wednesday and Thursday. The company he works for was closed for two days.

    I'm surprised we all don't freeze to death with the thin, cheap jackets we have. It's ashame we can't get warm clothing.
