I have been reading everything I can online and it appears that now that the storm is abating, the only main concerns are power outages close to New York City (i.e street lights etc).
I am factoring in extra time for detours. I have the live google disaster maps, a 4WD SUV, roadside assistance, another driver, and my destination isn't a problem in New York (they have power etc.).
Everyone I tell about this says I should not go. I think I have enough bases covered. Obviously it isn't optimal but I need to go.
Is it ridiculous to try and make this journey? Am I missing any information?
