Friday drive challenging as snow cleanup begins

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

As the tri-states began to dig out Friday morning and get to work, it wasn't as easy as just "hop-in-and-drive."

The morning commute in Quincy was interesting for many. Many cars had trouble at the intersections; Not sliding through them, but spinning and lacking traction when they tried to get going.

There's just so much snow that it's still pretty deep in many spots, especially in the intersections.

Driver Cecil Stuart said the most trouble he had wasn't on the roads.

"Just my driveway," said Stuart. "It wasn't scooped or anything. It was pretty deep."

Like Stuart, many people woke up to find the snow plows left them barricaded in when they went to drive or shovel through on the edge of the streets.

Broadway was clear but most all of the side streets were still covered Friday morning and smaller roads like Jersey and York were impassible for some vehicles.

Until the snow melts or until plows can make it to some of the less-traveled roads in town, some Quincy residents might be snowed in.
