Is driving from southern Massachusetts to central Maine tomorrow an extremely bad idea? What is the latest time I can safely set out on my journey? (Note that I don't have four wheel drive or a death wish). Will all that snow be cleared away for an easy return on Sunday?

I saw this film on television in the 70s when I was young; it was broadcast sometime before 1979. Some people are stranded after a snow storm. At one point they discover a car in the snow, and when they look inside the car they see the people in it were frozen to death. I think someone cried out, "Oh, no, it's the professor!" (or something like that). At another point in the film they come across a cabin in the woods and try to open a can of something they find, but they have no can opener. The film was in color, so please don't suggest something in black & white. It may have been made for TV or it may have been an actual film; I remember there being a lot of commercials for it because we had just had the great "Blizzard of 1978" in Boston. Any help finding this film would be great! One person suggested to me it might be "The Untamed" directed by Archainbaud, but it is not that. PLEASE HELP!

I lost my Blizzard Authenticator after cleaning my room... THE DAY BEFORE DIABLO! I contacted them, but I haven't heard anything. I sent in a photo of my Driver's License through their contact form for detaching the authenticator from my account, but I haven't heard anything back and it's been over 12 hours (I know I should give it time)... Anybody have any idea how long this kind of thing usually takes? I'm worried that maybe it didn't go through and maybe I should try sending again. If I had a general idea my mind would be greatly eased.

I am trying to find the name of a movie I watched on TV when I was a young kid back in the 1970s. The film was about a group of people lost in a forest after a blizzard. At one point they find a car and start shouting, "It's the professor!" But when they get to the car the people inside it are frozen to death. I'm pretty sure it was a film for adults that was being broadcast on TV or it could have been made for TV.

I live in Baltimore County, MD where there's a ridiculous amount of snow piling up. What's the best way to hire a snow remover service? Also, for those who are also getting hit by the blizzard, what's the going price range/wait? Any recommendations? [more inside]

I'm scheduled to fly out of Seattle (SEA) tomorrow (Friday Dec 22) on my way to visit family in Ohio (columbus, CMH) for Christmas. However, my layover is in Denver (DEN), which seems to be under a couple feet of snow. They say the airport might not even open until tomorrow afternoon... What are my options to make my trip less of a headache? [more inside]

I'm looking for the title of a movie where the setting is this:
A group of researchers (military?) are in a blizzard or snow storm in what I recall is Alaska or the arctic.
One of them is killing the others, and it turns out to be some sort of Alien or parasite. ... [more inside]
