Snow Drift Cause Problems Along The Lakeshore

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

At times during our drive around Muskegon county the road that was clearly there at times but disappeared an instant later.

Around lunch time on Friday, the Muskegon County road commission pulled plows from the far North West part of the county.  The drifting snow made it hard for plows to know where the roads and where it begins  The drifts also left a few drivers on rural back roads stuck, surrounded by snow.

A fact we learned in a matter of two minutes.  While shooting video the FOX 17 news Jeep got stuck in a drift happened.

Lucky for us a kind-hearted local plow driver stopped and pulled us out of the drift with a chain.

Even the highways that looked very passable at time proved to be dangerous.  We watched police put lights on to warn drivers on an exit ramp, that a driver ahead had lost control.

The driving wind showed time and time again how fast it can cause problems on the road, especially along the Lakeshore.

    I didn’t watch the video but read the article below. Your grammar is pathetic. If you want people to take your newscast seriously, you better improve your speech and writing.
