Reliability - Weather

The big snowstorm is moving into the northeast.

The rail based transport is operating.

Airlines are not operating.

Essentially outside the Northeast Corridor, Americans do not
have an alternative to air travel because
there is no passenger rail service with competitive transit times
that High Speed Rail HSR (110 + speed) provides.

A progress prone society would have an HSR system serving
vast portions of the country.

Persons saying the USA is the greatest country in the world
say so with prejudice and foolish pride.

The shut down of the country is a vulnerability. A shutdown due
to weather is stupid. Weather may lessen HSR capacity. But,
it does cotinue to function.

The impact upon the economy that is so unnecessary due to
weather is hard to understand why it is tolerated.
