Ride along with CR Snow Plow Drivers

Cedar Rapids City Snow Plow Driver Ron Abernathy heads back out onto snowy streets as crews try to get ahead of Thursday's storm

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (CBS2/FOX28) - City plowing crews say they go into every storm expecting the worst, but hoping the snow will turn north or south. Thursday night they hit the streets shortly after the first flakes fell and anticipated they may be in for a long event.

Fortunately this time, the worst of the storm tracked north of the city and cleanup should be a little easier. With more storms forecast for this weekend, drivers say motorists could make their lives a lot easier if they would just slow down and take time to pay attention to the streets.
