Hi everyone-

First, I'm so sorry that so many of you were affected by Hurricane Sandy. I hope life is getting back to normal.

I'm traveling this coming Saturday through New Jersey (RI to Virginia) and was wondering if there were any special consideration I should make due to the hurricane clean-up. I typically take the GW Bridge provided there isn't terrible traffic, but feel like the Tappan Zee might be a better idea this time around. Other than filling up my gas tank in Connecticut so I can make it through the state without getting gas, is there anything I should be prepared for?

Thanks!

The highways are fine and the gas is not an issue now. You'll be fine.

Yes, they even lifted the odd/even day business we had for about a week. Gas is usually cheaper in NJ vs. CT. Things are fairly well settling down most places. Most power is up everywhere, although I'm sure there are a few more rural or special exceptions. Driving through should be no different than usual. The whole gas line thing was sooooo, last week!

Good to know. It's hard to tell from the news since they seem to have moved from Hurricane Sandy to "someone in to gov't had sex" mode. Thanks for the advice, I know gas is typically cheaper in NJ, but didn't want to use up any when otherwise available or end up stuck somewhere. Thanks!

No problems for highway driving, and no problems for getting gas.

There's a few scattered rural areas (plus barrier islands/coastal areas) with remaining issues, but you're not going to be encountering those on your drive anyway.

The rest stop on the Garden State Parkway around exit 120 is upgrading its pipes and has no gas.

As long as you are not traveling within a few miles of the ocean, roads are relatively normal. The vicinity of the shore is still trouble.

My only suggestion is to stop in Hackensack and grab some sliders at White Manna.

You can thank me later.

That small local burger place next to the gas station, and across McDonald's?

I passed thru it several times on the way to Costco, so one day I decided to go in and eat there. Crowded like a zoo, so I expected the food to be good. It must be a joke... Mini home-made burgers with only grilled onions on top. Nothing special lol.... I don't understand why people would eat there more than once.

They would taste better if they put tomatoes, lettuce, and dressing as well
