Sandy Extends Your License
There is something positive about Hurricane Sandy bearing down on the East Coast: If you are in Connecticut with a license, tags or anything else issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles expiring – relax. Sandy bought you extra time.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy ordered that all expiration dates and periods of validity for motor vehicle registrations, licenses, permits, certificates and other forms of credentials issued by or on behalf of the Department of Motor Vehicles be immediately extended until further notice due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy on Connecticut, The Hour writes. Said the Governor:
“With the severe weather impacting our state at this time, we are extending all motor vehicle deadlines and expiration dates until the storm has subsided. It is simply not realistic right now for people to meet these deadlines considering that we are urging people to stay in their homes and avoid the severe weather.”
It's not that much of a favor. DMV is closed on Mondays in CT anyway...
What a relief! Now our Gov just needs to keep the power on (no easy feat here in the Nutmeg state) and hold back the second storm surge tonight!
This is one time it's good to be 100 miles inland from the Jersey coast. Now, if we can keep the power on thorugh the next 24 hours!
Living in Florida I'm watching this whole circus unfold and shaking my head in wonder. Quite a bit of hype going into what is only, if we're honest with ourselves, a Cat 1 hurricane that will weaken before landfall. It will rain hard, the wind will blow hard but it is not then end of the world, contrary to what the news talking heads standing on the beaches would have their audiences believe.
