What's it like to drive a snowplow? Find out in this video.
Back-to-back storms were capped with another round of snow across the state on Friday, but PA Turnpike Maintenance crews were ready.
All across the system, equipment operators jumped behind the wheel of their snowplows, mechanics kept all the gear up and running, and everyone pitched in to keep the highway safe.
At Mt. Gretna, for example, Zach Seidel was among those who made pass after pass on his team’s stretch of highway, laying down salt and clearing snow.
