All well and good to hate, but at least be realistic about it. The storm is expected to start after service starts for the morning. You do realize the top of the rail is about 8" above the ground right? And with no real snow cover on the ground early accumulation from this storm is not likely to cause issues in the morning. The evening will be more challenging, but with trains running all day the tracks stay pretty clear - it doesn't get a chance to build up too high.
