BOSTON (CAP) - The state of Massachusetts has issued a Lizza D warning to motorists, urging those who travel the Commonwealth's roadways to take extra precaution as necessary. Many say they will take heed.
"I saw the sign as I drove onto the Expressway, and I immediately locked all the doors," said Quincy resident Mickey Silverman. "Then I called my wife and had her draw all the shades in the house. Can't be too safe."
State police say they are prepared and have ramped up safety measures, including arming all officers with beanbag shooters and tear gas. Official say it's tough facing an unknown enemy.
"We do not know who Lizza D is or why the state has issued a warning about her," said Massachusetts State Police Superintendent Col. Timothy Alben. "But better safe than sorry if she is anywhere near as dangerous as the sign makes her out to be."
Still others are throwing caution to the wind, leaving snowblowers uncovered in their driveways and pets unsupervised in the backyard. Somerville resident Shay Dickinson told CAP News the eight-foot wall of snow bordering his yard is all the protection he needs.
"You know what, Lizza D can suck it, that's what I think," he said. "Lizza and that friggin' horse she rode in on. I got your warning right here, you filthy ho."
The warning expires tomorrow, likely to be replaced with a Lizza D Watch for the next couple of days. Coastal areas and some watershed communities will remain under Lizza D Advisories for the forseeable future.
