    Several sources indicate that the Governor was warned about the incoming blizzard and the absence of his Lt. Governor but departed anyway.



    Lie much?

    It wasn't supposed to be a "big storm" until the morning it hit VA and changed course....



    It's a ****ing snowstorm, acting like it's katrina makes one look foolish and a partisan hack....

    Weren't you all over Obama for not being close enough the gulf oil spill when he was perfectly capable of giving orders from the White House?

    2006 was worse, and the cleanup seemed slower to me. I could of cared less where Corzine was.

    It was a snow storm, they happen almost every year.

    Already answered, but see unlike europe, when typical weather events happen, 30,000 people don't die.

    Ultimately, the complaint in this thread is stupid. Several states have had trouble cleaning up after the snow this time around, but according to what I heard on NPR this morning, it had more to do with budget cuts creating reduced capacity than any level of administrative failure.

    actually, municipalities are in charge of local streets

    county, for county roads.

    state for state and interstate highways with federal funding towards removal on interstate systems




    sorta how hurricane cleanup is supposed to work.

    I'm in Jersey. Cleanup of 30+ inches of snow happened in a timely manner, this is a total non story...

    A reporter actually asked that ???? Doesn't surprise me really.

    If someone wanted to bitch about politicians and snowstorms, Seattle was the place to be. Few years ago, Seattle's liberal government refused to put salt on the roads after a major snowstorm and the city was tied up for almost a week.

    Seems they didn't want the salt washing into the bay. Someone forgot to tell them that the bay water was already salty.
