Watch: North Country Digs In, Digs Out


Where snow falls in northern New York, someone is likely to come along and clean it up.

Even if it takes four hours.

That's roughly how long it can take to clear the vehicles at a big dealership like the Fuccillo Auto Mall in Adams, where we visited Thursday.

It's a lot of work.

"We have hundreds of cars here at the auto mall and we have to get 'em all cleaned and moved and make sure the customers can come out, buy the vehicles - and be able to see them," said Ron Whiting.

People who make their living from the snow, like plow operator Mike Weston, were busy Thursday, but didn't mind.

"You gotta take it when you can," Weston said. "Last winter I plowed five times."

Others, pressed into service to clear a sidewalk or driveway, were a little stunned by the snow.

"You can never be prepared for this kind of stuff," Robert Arviso said as he worked in Watertown.

"I don't care how long you live here, you can never be prepared for this stuff," he said. "It's cold, it's a lot of snow, it's a lot of work, but it's got to get done."
