A lot of complaining in Virginia about the highways being impassable, and emergency vehicles failing to rescue people literally snowbound for hours.
Nearly 50 mile stretch of I-95 in Virginia is shut down this morning. Some drivers say they’ve been stuck for over 10 hours! https://t.co/cBLE7AXGRW– JoeyLive5 (@JoeySovine) January 4, 2022
@JohnRogers8NewsWe’ve been getting calls from people stranded on I-95 for up to 16 HOURS!!
People running out of gas and food while stuck in awful backups lasting for miles and miles.
We’ll be covering it all this morning on @8NEWS
Enter fat failure and comfort-craving weakling softbelly liberal Jonah Goldberg.
For instance, Jonah Goldberg, who we have been reliably told is a truuuue conservative or something, said on Twitter that “If I was Glenn Youngkin I’d be flooding the zone to get this I-95 crap fixed. DC suburbs are vengeful about this kind of thing.”
I’m glad that RedState quoted that, because I didn’t think to screencap it, and the Coward Weakling Jonah has now deleted it.
Nice save, Jonah. You’re so funny, you’re able to effortlessly turn a humiliating error that exposes you as an on-the-payroll leftist shill into a humorous, charming moment by using 2005-era slang like “baller.”
I know why he claimed that Youngkin was governor — because other leftwingers, the only people he trusts, were making that claim on Twitter, the only platform he reads.
How long would it have taken you to actually confirm who the governor is of the state right next to the District you live in, Jonah? Two seconds?
A rude awakening for all you Global warming/Climate Change Alarmists here is the snow you said would never come again over t his Global Warming/Climate Change scam did you divest in Fossil Fuels because Greenpeace iidots Brainwash your kids hey Greta Here is Snow now you better not have thrown away your Snow Shovels you need them right now
I guess, as they said about Texas, Northam should have been “ready”. Has AOC laid into him for being AWOL? Or, is she still worried that those who criticize her only want to do to her what she is doing to the entire country?
Closing the highway maybe?
I’ve only seen that once in a Wisconsin whiteout, they banned tow trucks from the highway and the police rescued the people in the median and ditches then put tall whip flags on the cars marking them so the next cop knew there was nobody to keep from freezing. Trapped in an eectric car with highly limited battery to keep a heater running sounds like an adventure we all would pass on.
In fairness, Kitt, a gas or diesel engine has a tough time running when the fuel tank is dry. Just happens considerably faster in an electric.
Bill Idling cars consume about 1/7 to 1/5 gallon of gas per hour on average. The big trucks have really big fuel tanks and are left ilding in freezing as diesel turns to goo in the lines.
Here in the frozen tundra most tanks are kept over 1/2 full to avoid condensation.
Just dumb stuff ya learn in a colder climate. Sure I would’nt know bunches about living in a warmer climate.
Something you may or may not have seen yet:
Northam defended his decision not to activate the Virginia National Gaurd or declare a state of emergency, citing the difficulty of getting workers and equipment through the icy roads to help travelers, according to the AP.
um… doesn’t the National Guard have vehicles DESIGNED for just that kind of condition?
No, winter stops the entire military. https://www.thedrive.com/tech/1125/12-military-vehicles-that-will-knock-winter-on-its-ass.
Helicopters are grounded even AF1
There is a divide in the Republican Party Youngkin has been slammed for some of his cabinet picks from both sides. Guy hasnt taken the reins yet. I think we need to wait and see.
The current Governor obviously is a total failure and couldnt pull off re-election. We can hope Youngkin isnt a total squish.
Funny that Jonah Goldberg claimed he was “quitting” Fox News over how mean Tucker was to him.
But, actually, Fox News had already told Jonah they were cancelling him effective in mid-January. So, he was going, going, gone anyway.
Local Utah news covered how electric cars can be destroyed by running the battery down to nothing in the snowed in conditions.
Sometimes they might take a recharge, other times not.
