other directionIt once took me 24 hours to get from Bromley to Wayne, PA. It didn't help that they closed I-287 under us in northern Jersey during an ice storm. After sitting for 4 hours the passenger cars were escorted off the road and to a school where the red cross set up a shelter. On the plus side, we had a foot of powder at Bromley that morning and nobody there, even though it was MLK weekend. The snow turned to freezing rain as we drove south. The drive hadn't been too slow until all traffic just came to a halt. The road was so slippery that it was almost impossible to stand up, but with an AWD Toyota Previa, which has the engine under the driver's seat, I really didn't notice until I stepped out of the car!
This was the winter in the early 90s when we had multiple ice storms in the Philly area, and heavy snows in the interior of the state.
