Roads slick, slippery in hard hit areas

Posted: Updated:
As the winter storm moved in Tuesday afternoon road conditions got drastically worse.

The snow blew around easily in the strong winds and piled up quickly with some placed receiving snow up to 1 inch per hour at times.

“It just took me about 20 min just to come a few a miles the worst part of it is you can't see where your lane is and that’s a little hairy,” Eileen Olson said.

Rest areas on Route 24 were crowded as drivers stopped for gas and windshield wiper fluid.

On the roads plenty of plows were moving to try and keep up with the accumulation.

“I’ll go slow and just keep my eyes out for everyone else and don’t slam on my brakes,” Olson said.

Officials encourage everyone who does not need to be on the roads to stay home and let the removal crews do their work.
