MidWest Blizzard affecting delivery ?
 
Can all the snow and blizzard conditions in the mid west affect the train schedules and deliveries coming out of the factory? Just curious cus our GC is on a train, according to Milous' tracking, in Ill.
Living in Texas, we don't know about these things. :-)

they should get the jeep off the train and use it to tow the rest of them through the snow...

I'd be surprised if it affects train schedules all that much; IL and MO weren't hit all THAT hard. Yeah, it was ugly around here this morning (mainly due to people who should have stayed home weren't, but I finally got to use the "Snow" setting... worked GREAT).

If it's delayed at all, it might only be by a half day or so; nothing you'd really notice.

It was a dusting and, as usual, the media is over-reacting for the current 24hr news cycle. I could have literally used a broom to sweep off my walks.

On the other hand, the blizzard HAS delayed the assembly lines (JNAP isn't mentioned, though)...

Good catch on that bpmcgee. The JIT manufacturing process can bite a company badly when mother nature unloads.

apparently the weather didn't stop the trains - Jeep is off the rail car waiting to be picked up by our dealer - should have it Sat or Mon.
