I'll be travelling next week for two weeks in the US, here's my tour of duty: New Jersey, Connecticut, Boston, Chicago, Rockford and then San Francisco, in 11 days!! 5 flights, 3 car hires, 5 hotels and a house rental, oh deep joy!

Quick questions for you all, what's the snow like for driving in New York, CT, MA, IL at the moment and over the next week? I know its cold but I'm assuming the roads are all moving ok? Anything to watch out for? Is this Polar Vortex done?

Closest person I know is my cousin in Maine. She said the schools are closed because of the snow. It's 8 degrees (F) there and 15F in New York.

Good luck.

I've checked and there is a clipper due next week in the MA area. Looks like I am screwed. We have a 4WD, maybe that will help. It's taken me months setting these bloody things up!

Two points come to mind IG. (1) SF will be the most hospitable place (but then it always is). (2) Being from the UK, you'll be used to wearing only one set of clothes for the entire 11 days. :p

Rockford eh??? Illinois I assume? Not even an hour from me.

What's your schedule?? Maybe we could grab a bite some night.

This place looks fitting.

I may, or may not, wear my chaps.
Record the evening. I would anticipate it could be posted on Greg's joke thread the next day. I can already see the video. Here's an Irish leprechan sitting in a bar beside a guy with nothing on except a pair of chaps... and a Glock stuck in the belt. They are discussing shaft stiffness, white balls, and are talking about a guy named Sol who loves cigars and teenage girls. Can't wait......

This post is oozing with jealousy.

I'm about an hour from Boston. Doesn't look like much is happening next week except the cold. If it was summer, I'd meet you somewhere for golf...but it's not, and I'm hibernating :)

I'll be back in the summer. So driving is OK Mark? Roads open?
