A state-by-state (and Ontario) look
at how the storm was dealt with.
I'd love to see a grid with a real comparison of # of outages, # of deaths and # of stranded motorists versus overall population.
I think the travel ban worked really, really
well here. We only had 30 stranded motorists whereas Connecticut (it's not in the article; I read this elsewhere and can't recall where) had 1700 and there are plenty of pics from New York showing stranded motorists on the Long Island Expressway and Jericho Turnpike (Route 25, also on LI), and it's pretty obvious that just the two small images I saw had far more than 30 vehicles in them.
One very, very bright spot - I think fewer than 10 people died in all of the 8 affected states and the 1 province. And that's pretty dang amazing, particularly when you consider how many millions of people live in the area.
