Plows hit the street early Thursday morning and they worked throughout the day.

"We have 60-trucks and 50 people," says Don Komara of V-DOT.

While V-DOT had their hands full, private contractors shoveled, salted and plowed the smaller lots.

"With weather the way its been around the world, from what I can see this is the most we've had," says snow remover Rick Bond.

But, this is good news for them, the Valley saw more snow on Thursday than all of last year, and that means jobs during these winter months.

"More layoff last year, but I don't see a break in it this year. I don't see a break anyways," says snow remover Thomas Shifflett.

But don't expect to see the smaller contractors out on the bigger roadways, V-DOT drivers say they have them taken care of.

"Just be careful allow extra time, we're doing best we can do- we can only do so much. We're doing the best we can do," explains Jerry Dover, V-DOT driver.
