    Cody's the man. He brought the ice melt, so got him some brick oven pizza. Christie was jealous, so I told him he could share.

    Living here in N.J. and having experienced the blizzard... it wasn't as bad a past years. Him leaving isn't a big deal... sure it may be frowned upon, but who cares enough to make a big stink of it.

    So did we ever find out if he left on vacation knowing the storm was coming or the storm information came after he had left? I would not expect him to go back during a storm that had not been known when he left for vacation, but if he left knowing that his state would be hit by a massive storm, then he has some explaining to do.

    I don't know about New Jersey, but my son in Philly said they were predicting a dusting, then changed it to a major storm a day or two before Christmas.

    Actually I'm a big fan of Christie. Just think the situation dictates he needs to get is fanny back to his office....

    Several sources indicate that the Governor was warned about the incoming blizzard and the absence of his Lt. Governor but departed anyway.
    YEAH!!!! What did he know about the weather, and when did he know it?
