Hello Busy Educator,
Last week I told you about my trip to Pennsylvania and New Jersey with my sister and my 82 year old mom.
What I didn’t tell you was that we were on the same 132-mile section of Interstate 90 from Exit 46 outside Rochester to Exit 61 at Ripley on the Pennsylvania border which was shut done this week.
It was shut down due to a series of snow storms that dumped up to 90 inches/7.5 feet (218 cm/2 m) of snow on Buffalo New York. More than 100 vehicles got stranded on I-90 after it was closed. Some motorists spent as long as two days struck in their vehicles before help arrived.
If you are travelling in snowbound areas, it’s good to be prepared. Here are some tips for you: Make sure you have snow tires, a full tank of gas, a charger for your cell phone, water in a thermos (freezes in a plastic bottle), blankets and or sleeping bag, protein bars, chocolate bars, and nuts.
Wishing you safe travels wherever you may be.
