    Snow, rain, snow... mess!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     photogomz was caught in what he called a "three-hour nightmare" yesterday when he was driving to work on Interstate 95 near Woburn, Massachusetts. "It started snowing lightly around 6 a.m. and continued until 12 p.m., but after that snow was falling heavily," he said. "I'd say in the Woburn area there was a total accumulation of six inches of snow, which later in the evening turned into a rainy mix." Photogomz said these wintry conditions are normal for Massachusetts and that the state was as prepared as it could be. "I think there was enough snow removal and plowing equipment on the roads," he said. "Unfortunately, the combination of bad weather and hundreds of vehicles on the roads do not mix well."

    Commuters in the northeast affected by today's storm. Originally predicted as a wintery mix of snow and rain turned into a massive mess in parts of Massachusetts. For me a 30min ride became a 3 hour nightmare as interstate 95 turned from a lonely snowy ride into a massive gridlock with cars spinning in the middle of the highway and sliding off the road in a matter of minutes.
