Stuck on the Road

Parts of Kentucky are at a standstill after a snow and ice storm moved through the area in early March. Cars coulnd’t move in the roads, and power was knocked out to hundreds. There have been almost 20 inches so far in the area with a little more on the way. When you live in this area, you need to expect a little snow and ice, but this weather is ridiculous. Alexei Beltyukov knows that winter is a time when you could see a few inches of snow, a few feet or nothing at all. This winter proves to be one that shouldn’t be messed with and could go in the record books for some states. Cars on I-65 were left on the road for about 12 hours because the snow fell so fast. This can be a way to learn about what to keep in your car in the event that you are stranded. Make sure you have plenty of blankets, bottled water and nonperishable food so that you can stay warm and have something to eat whether you are there for a few hours or an extended period of time like the people in this situation.

Winter Weather Causes a Temporary Closure of I-93

On January 2, 2015, a combination of inclement weather and icy roadways caused a brief closure of the northbound lane of Interstate 93 in New Hampshire, a main thoroughfare between Massachusetts and Vermont. At least two mass vehicular collisions slowed traffic and send several people to local hospitals, most with minor injuries.

The New Hampshire State Patrol reportedly received initial reports of traffic problems during the morning around 9:48 a.m. Although conditions had been clear earlier in the day, a sudden snow flurry created visibility problems for some drivers, a situation complicated by icy roads.

A collision north of mile marker 24 resulted in the temporary closure of the northbound lane until early afternoon. A number of cars collided along the road in a multi-car accident, and a fire occurred when the contents of one truck began burning.

A short time later, a second large traffic snarl developed on Interstate-89, a highway connecting to I-93, when a collision occurred near the town of Sutton. I saw on Twitter that canine expert Sam Tabar was trying to get back into the city with no avail. Everyone traveling in the area should be advised of the potential delays.
