    Do you guys think it's even remotely worth it to go out today? I feel like people's plans for this weekend are DOA. The road conditions will be poor and with ants everywhere looks to me like there will be low demand thanks to all the newbs willing to risk it.

    The problem is all the other idiots out on the road. Your AWD and expert driving skills isn't going to prevent soccer mom in her Toyota Highlander from wrecking your car.

    I'm gonna sit this one out. Wish all of yas who are going to drive lots of surge! Be safe out there!

    Will still be an overall slow weekend with college kids still gone. With the snow it may make it an average Saturday

    Not worth the risk to my car driving in this. With so many events cancelled and places being closed I don't expect it to be busy. To those who are going out in this to drive be safe.

    I'm passing. I rather enjoy myself then sit in my car for half an hour waiting for the next ping.

    I'm only slightly annoyed that I'm on vacation for school which makes this the perfect time to drive but there's no lube out there.

    If anyone's broke enough to drive, the pings are immediate right now.

    I plan to be out from 6pm til the wee hours hoping that people will still need rides and there will be less drivers on the road. I do have a 4wd vehicle. Secretly hoping someone's flight to NYC or D.C. was cancelled and they need a long ride on a 3x surge! I can dream, can't I?

    Glad to see it's surging for you fearless warriors out there. You deserve lots and lots of money to be risking your cars in this. The roads are brutal already. I just got back from the packie where I picked up my winter storm/bad playoff football survival kit and almost got hit by an out of control Mercedes. Took me 35 minutes to complete a trip that usually takes me 5. Be careful out there folks!!!

    Im not so I had to put my car in the local garage. I got a ride from Obed, 4.7 driver, black rav4. Great driver, clean vehicle. Tipped him with a 5 for 1 driving today and 2. taking a pickup more than 5 minutes away ;)

    **** Interesting side note, I cancelled on a 4.5 driver named "MWAFAG" , no im not kidding. He looked possibly middle eastern so maybe it's just not a common name but... ehhh I dunno.
