Well, this really, really didn't pan out like I thought it would. After my friend canceled on me, I thought about it, and still decided to say screw it and go alone...
...But apparently the entire state of New Jersey is a fucking trainwreck after this storm. The exit for the train station was closed off because of a gigantic tree in the middle of the road, as was the next one. So I eventually got turned around, and after the bad advice of some stupid cop, got off the highway and attempted to find my way on back roads, which is where things got even worse. After going fairly out of the way and giving up because literally like every fucking road was closed, I decided to say screw it and return to the highway... except for the fact that they now had the exit I got off at closed, so I had to follow a fairly small road to get on at another exit... which wouldn't have been so bad, if not for the fact that a TON of others were doing the exact same thing, so I sat in traffic for an hour just to get back onto the highway. At this point I never would've been able to make it in time, even if somehow (HIGHLY unlikely) I had been able to get to the train. So I said fuck it and just drove home.
So in the end I wasted $20 in gas and 4 hours of my life. This was most certainly an "epic fail". Really pissed to have to have missed the show.
