That reminds me of when I got stuck in the big blizzard of 1983 (?) in NYC. All the highways basically got shut-down. I (and tens of thousands of others) got stuck on the Major Deegan from about 8PM until the plows could finally push through in the early hours of the next morning. Fortunately, we had a full tank of gas, blankets and even chocolate bars in the trunk so we were merely discomfited rather than threatened (if things had become truly desperate, we could have left our cars and sought shelter in nearby buildings that were a few hundred feet away, but this was NYC in the early 80s and abandoning your car meant you weren't going to see it in one piece again ;-)

But the drive home after the plows came through had the same quiet, almost post-apocalyptic vibe.

I haven't thought of that blizzard in /years/.
