Digging cars out of the snow after the storm


Many Albany residents spent a part of the day digging their cars out of the snow, before the temperature drops even lower on Monday.

“I kinda got used to being in the south,” said Albany resident, Cymmeon Roberts. “My bones got used to being in the south and now I have to come home and here I am. It’s a rude-awaking!”

Snow is an unwelcomed sight for Cymmeon Roberts and his girlfriend Ebony Coffee, who came back to Albany from Georgia 3 months ago.

“I have another car, I got it out this morning, but I didn’t make it to the end of the block. I had to shovel a parking spot then park it,” explained Roberts.

Roberts had to walk to work this morning, but luckily, he said he only works about a half-mile away. After his ordeal this morning, he’s already planning ahead for next year’s big storm.

” I’m gonna get a truck for next year! I won’t be doing this again!

And with a snow emergency declared for the city of Albany starting tomorrow, Ebony Coffee said she’s getting a head start on shoveling her car out of the snow.

” I don’t want to be stuck, iced in,” she explained. “I want to make sure that I can get out.”

And Albany resident, Charles Taylor feels the same way about digging out his car.

“ I figured I can nip it in the rear end right now,” Taylor stated. “Get a head start before the fridged cold comes.”
