And I quote:

IN THESE WHITE OUT CONDITIONS. IF YOU MUST TRAVEL…HAVE A WINTER SURVIVAL KIT WITH YOU. IF YOU GET STRANDED…STAY WITH YOUR VEHICLE AND WAIT FOR HELP TO ARRIVE.
You know it’s not good when they cancel a Winter Storm warning because it’s not severe enough. And for those of you scoring at home, I’m currently scheduled to arrive in Denver at midnight tomorrow. Yeah, as in right in the middle of the storm. I’m sorry: blizzard.
Guess I’d better get used to the Hotel Marlowe. If anybody has any spare shirts they can bring buy here, that’d be sweet. The holiday travel season is not starting out well.
