Snow Plows Stopped Because of Stella

Snow plow on the road
Purestock

So much snow that even the plows had to get off the roads in the Town of Wallkill.

Mike Aumick, Town of Wallkill’s highway supervisor, told the Times Herald Record that during the blizzard yesterday the town had to pull the plows off the road for a period of time due to drivers not being able to see the roads.

Aumick’s said that over his radio, yesterday he heard one driver say that, “I can’t see nothing. I don’t even know if I’m on the road.”

That prompted the town to pull the plows at around 10:45 a.m. yesterday until around noon time on Tuesday.

Aumick also told the Record that in his 30 years of driving plows he had never seen anything like what “Stella” was dropping on the Hudson Valley. He said, “There’s no way to see anything when it’s like this, when it snows this hard, what can you do?”

Once plows hit the roads again around noon, Aumick said that plowing in such severe conditions usually takes longer than usual. Some plows can drive up to 30 mph in most snow storms but in this storm drivers were averaging between five and 10 mph.
