Snow emergency begins in Albany

ALBANY -- A snow emergency was declared starting at 8 p.m. Tuesday. Drivers worked to clear their cars from the odd side of the street to avoid getting ticketed and towed.

It's really annoying. Im from Long Island and we don't do that on Long Island, said Marissa McCort as she worked to free her SUV.

Near St. Rose, University at Albany students received an email from the school letting them know about the snow emergency. Brittney Wilkinson used a shovel to dig out her car from nearly a foot of snow after not driving it since Saturday.

It's bad. Theres a lot of snow, said Wilkinson. There's too much snow for one girl to move a car. Im going to need to find help.

Some business owners along Lark St. couldnt wait for the plows to come through. Amazing Wok said it had a very slow day because customers couldnt find parking along the snow-covered streets.

We have a lot of people who walk in here and also people drive by and are able to park on the street to get some food, but it's very, very difficult today to come in here, said owner Dan Young as he shoveled his sidewalk.

Some drivers took advantage of designated parking areas set up by the city during snow emergencies.

This neighborhood's not bad because they open the park up to us, so they'll let you park in the park while theyre doing snow removal, said Greg Danz as he cleared snow outside a building he works for. It's a big benefit to the people of this neighborhood.

The snow emergency continues Wednesday when drivers must move their cars to the odd side of the street at 8 p.m.
