If you were driving along I-90, heading toward the New York - Pennsylvania state line Wednesday night, you probably came across slow speeds and very white conditions.
"It's terrible," said John Cretacci, of Buffalo, New York. "The Southern Tier from Hamburg to the end of the thruway is always terrible."
For part of the night, I-90 east bound from Dunkirk to Silver Creek was closed, and west bound was closed from Hamburg to Dunkirk.
"I lost about 2 1/2 hours, maybe almost 3 hours, just between Buffalo and Dunkirk," said Paul Lafave, of Amherst, New York. "It was primarily a dead stop for at least an hour, maybe an hour and a half."
Even heading into Erie, conditions got a little dicey on Interstate 79.
"The closer I got to the Erie exit, I could hardly see. In fact, I couldn't see the exit. I followed a truck off the exit," said Cretacci.
Lafave and Cretacci both said when the roads get like they were Wednesday, they always leave themselves plenty of time, and space, when they travel.
"I'm being extra cautious, going slow, staying out of the lane that doesn't look too good. You always get people that are more aggressive than they probably should be on this," said Lafave. "It's much better to be late and alive."
"I just drive slow and just try to put my flashers on," said Cretacci.
Even though people in Northwestern Pennsylvania are used to driving in the snow, it's still important to take it easy out on the roads during the snowy days and night.
