all routes were operating with delays (because of noon start time and the weather) except the 10C and 5A.

There was however NO service to Gordon Heights and i believe the back roads of Wading River

I wonder if thats how it was planed or because of delays. I wonder how the Orion VII's held up today.

This is the first time i can ever remember suffolk suspending service for weather.

I know that the cab companies by me were all closed today, so people who needed to get around anywhere in the Mastic/Shirley area where stuck until the buses started running.

I wonder if all the routes had all their buses running or they only sent out one or two buses to do a route (needless to say i didn't venture out to see how the S66 and 7D did today, i have no idea if the 68 did any of its two runs to Center Moriches)

Heres a picture i took of Orion VII 1033 on the S66 the day after the blizzard, with my brand new camrea i recived for Christmas, the bus was only ten minutes late, which is unusual for the route, but not suprising giving the weather.

Suffolk Transit Orion 07.502 1033 on the S66

Here is a edited version of the picture

Slightly off-thread, but the worst bus ever on snow was the Grumman/Flx 870 and its successive clones. Couldn't start one on snow, then couldn't stop the damn thing once moving!

Best I ever drove on snow (in Cincinnati or Louisville) was the accursed AM-General. They even steered pretty good on snow and ice!
