A Messy Commute For Waterbury Drivers

News 8's Stephanie Simoni checking out road conditions in Waterbury (WTNH)

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — As soon as the sleet fell, clean up fell into full swing.

“It’s not bad,” said Waterbury’s Will Reyes. “We hope that it’s not going to be as bad as last year. We dealt with it last year.”

“It’s not too bad. It’s just a little wet,” Waterbury’s John Ortale said as he was shoveling. “I just don’t like snow anymore, I’m too old for it.”

Plow truck drivers were in full force too. They were hitting parking lots, roads, and driveways across Waterbury.

“It’s kind of heavy. You got to put it in low range four-wheel drive. Otherwise you’ll blow the transition. So, it’s a slower process when it’s like this,” said plow truck driver said Virtune Peloquin.

Traffic moved slower across I-84 too as the peak of the storm hit during the morning commute.
