Family Works Together to Clean Up From Storm

STUARTS DRAFT, Va. (WHSV) -- People in Augusta County were some of the hardest hit in Thursday's snowstorm and now many are just trying to dig themselves out.

The Cosbys, from Stuarts Draft, are one of those families, but they're not just working hard, they're also playing hard.

"We saw a bunch of snow coming. The kids looked out the window every hour to see how much we are getting. Yesterday morning, waking up, there was probably about twenty inches on the ground," said Scott Cosby.

They said they saw more than 20 inches of snow at their house, which certainly made it hard to shovel.

"Came out here and tried to shovel the driveway. It took about three and a half hours," said Cosby. "It's been pretty difficult with so much snow packed on top of each other, trying to shovel it. It's just heavy and hard to dig and shovel it."

Cosby also said that he is happy the street doesn't look the same as yesterday.

"We can get through now. I think they finally cleared the rest of it this morning. Yesterday they tried to plow and couldn't get through. They got one truck, with a plow, stuck just trying to get through here. We had to push him out," said Cosby.

While they worked hard to clean the snow off of their driveway and walkways, all their time outside wasn't spent doing work.

"We're just having fun in it, making what we can out of it. We've been making igloos, making big tunnels. Its fun that there's enough snow to pile it up. Its enough for them to play with, go sledding, snowball fights, things like that," said Cosby.
