I hope like hell the military hurries like they're heading to save the whole planet. I deeply fear what happens in New York City if power, law and a
sense of basic order is missing ......when people start to shiver and are already dealing with empty stomachs and no idea of what the future holds.
This has got to be terrifying for those who have no line to the outside but local gossip and rumor mills. Anyone who has been in a major disaster
knows what I mean by those. The child game of telephone is a perfect and reliable communication method by comparison.
If nothing else, they need to bite the bullet on cost and deadhead every reefer trailer in the country that direction until they have capacity to at
least seat everyone inside one. They are refrigeration....as everyone knows. What most people who haven't driven one don't know because it's rarely
talked about is they go the OTHER direction
too. It's been rare, but I hauled loads with 80 Degree required settings and I've blown my own
reefer units on high heat to break the hard freeze after unloading meat or something else.
Line those streets in the dark and cold areas with trucks.....and they bring 200-400 gallons of diesel with them. (My truck carried 400 gallons
on-board...plus 50 on the reefer) Each one of them. A reefer can run on the fuel it carries within it's own tank for 3-5 days though....MUCH longer
if used carefully and not on full 24/7 run mode.
^^ My suggestion for a workable and IMMEDIATE solution that is literally parked right in front of everyone, all over the nation.
