It is pretty interesting that some of those vehicles driver's would even attempt it, given it's condition..

My brother spent a year and a half over there and from what he tells me their airline isn't much better off. If they can get fuel they fly, if no fuel sit here and wait until they find fuel. Could be hours, could be days.

A Russian joke says something like: You have been found guilty and are sentenced to be hanged, you must bring your own rope.

They do just the opposite around here......1/2" of snow and they will close I-40 "just in case". Doesn't matter if you have a chained up 4x4 with all the recovery gear and are prepared to take care of yourself, they won't let you through because "it's too dangerous".

I found the roadblocks easy to bypass last time they tried to strand me in your neck of the woods.
