  20. New policy is overreactionRead the original story

    Jan 12, 2015 | Observer

Andrew Cuomo making a statement after he was blamed after the major snow event in November for motorists being stranded on the interstate? It is definitely a little bit of both. When the state Thruway closed early Friday into Saturday morning from Ripley to Rochester, there were some hazardous conditions, but nothing like what happened from Nov. 17 to 20 when Western New York was hit by 7 feet of snow in some areas.
