Winter storm hits Rochester
by Patrice Walsh
Rochester, N.Y. -- The snow kept falling and the temperatures dipped to single digits. It felt even colder with the sub-zero windchill. While some people heeded the warning to stay home, others ventured out.
Some walked to get places downtown, feeling it was safer than driving. They bundled up and trudged through the snow and wind.
Roads were snow-covered and slippery and traffic moved slowly. But nothing was moving at the bus station. Trailways and Greyhound suspended bus service because of the winter storm. The last buses pulled into the station late Thursday night. Service resumes Friday morning.
For those trying to keep the roads and sidewalks clear, it was a never-ending job. Plows made several runs on area roads and people shoveling their sidewalks were out there three or four times.
Some outlying counties issued travel advisories urging people to stay home. Some businesses and restaurants closed early.
But one native Rochesterian told us this storm reminded him of the winters when he was a child. He called it an old-fashioned Rochester winter.
