Winter storm Jonas – January 2016.

The next time you see a tow truck driver or a West Virginia Department of Transportation snow plow driver, how ’bouts telling them “thank-you” for what you do!!! These images and video were captured today on WV Route 20 South Road in French Creek, when a snow plow slid into the ditch while traveling north and plowing Rt. 20. Had it not been but for the WV DOT snow plow operators today, our roads would have been completely impassible and would have prevented emergency responders from going to calls.
