Though fortunately, it appears there were no deaths, and the four people who were reportedly hospitalized had issues that various media reports indicated were not life-threatening, the blame games and finger-pointing has commenced. Angry drivers tired from having to sit in cold vehicles with little to nothing to eat and nowhere to go to the bathroom as temperatures hovered below freezing are directing the blame squarely at Gov. Ralph Northam (D) and the Virginia Dept. of Transportation, both of which drivers have said were ill-prepared to handle the storm before the first snowflake ever fell.
