Hudson Valley hit hard by snow

The Hudson Valley is covered in snow right. There have been 165,000 power outages. Schools all over the Valley are closed. But Albany Police Officer Mike Smith says that the conditions are not horrible.

"The mains roads are cleared, its really the secondary roads that a concern right now."

Smith says Albany got about 12 inches of snow, and that its still coming down. He says its very wet outside, but that most officers driving through the city have not had a problem getting around. 

Before today, Albany had just 28 inches of snow all year, 18 less than what it normally gets by this time of year, but Smith says that the additional is not a welcome sight. 

"I'm the kind of guy who's always wishing for Spring"
