High winds drifting snow in West Haven

High winds are making it difficult for snow plow drivers to do their jobs in #Blizzard2015 (WTNH)

WEST HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — As the blizzard continues, high winds are making it difficult for anyone to be outside.

Conditions in West Haven were brutal Tuesday morning with more snow coming down and high winds blowing the precipitation directly into the face of anyone making their way through the weather.

Snow plow drivers said they are having a tough time doing their job because it is so windy. There’s nowhere for plow drivers to push the snow since it won’t stick. It just blows away.

In the parking lot of the hotel where we were staying for the blizzard, not only was the parking lot completely covered, but you could see the snow drifting, and hear the wind blowing.

Two years ago, plow drivers said they had an almost opposite situation. The snow was so heavy that plows were getting stuck trying to move it all. For this storm, plow drivers just have to wait it out. When the winds calm down, then they can get to work.
