Stranded on I-70: Traveler tweets his 8-hour delay

2 Mar

This story originally appeared on RealTime/STL.

An accident on eastbound Interstate 70 near Warrenton closed the highway overnight and stranded dozens of drivers.

Among them was travel consultant Kevin Dern, who tweeted his experience. Dern and his wife were returning to St. Louis from the True/False Film Fest in Columbia, Mo., and were about a mile behind the accident when they were stopped early Sunday morning.

The Missouri Department of Transportation issued a no-travel advisory for Saturday night through Sunday.

How deep is it?

Snowmageddon, part 2

14 Feb

There’s a second D.C. snow-lapse. It’s not as marshmallowy as the first one, and more planned.

More snow is expected in D.C. in the next few days. In St. Louis, there was a couple of inches last week, which really amounted to nothing (although most of the schools were closed for two days and there was a general freak-out). It’s snowing now, and is expected to continue (although not consistently) until Tuesday.

Now that’s a snowpocalypse

Have you ever microwaved a marshmallow?


Sara has photos of the first 26 inches of snow that fell in D.C. Another 10 to 12 inches is expected today.

In St. Louis, we have our own mini-snowpocalypse — there could be 5 inches by morning, which means there’s a full-on freak-out throughout the city.
