Stranded travelers

Posted: Updated:
Raleigh County WV -

Many travelers found themselves helpless yesterday in the midst of a massive snowstorm. 

Roadways were covered with snow and in very dangerous condition. Many travelers had to park the car and call it a night at a hotel.

I spoke with one motorist from Nebraska and he was irritated that his plans were being interrupted by the weather.

"Yeah, we are stranded. I mean, we could walk across the street to Hooters, but that's about as far as we would get," he said.

The Fairfield Inn General manager said that there were multiple people who checked in to stay away from the snow.
