    Stranded Motorists Keep Wreckers Busy

    Stranded Motorists Keep Wreckers Busy

    From early this morning until now...people have had to brave the snow to go to work.  And while some local businesses are busy helping people stay warm...others are helping motorists who are stuck in the snow. 

In a matter of minutes, the 18-wheeler was pulled out, but the driver had to wait three hours for help to arrive. 

Deanna Hayes drove through the winter storm last night from Fort Worth.  She has been driving for five years and has never been stuck in this kind of weather. So she was quite surprised when she saw all the snow in Amarillo. 

"I had freezing rain and sleet in Fort Worth and had no idea I was coming into this."

Hayes says from now on she is only going to drive in the daytime.
