NEWBURGH, N.Y. -- State police closed I-84 to all commercial vehicles Thursday afternoon due to the winter storm.
The highway will be open to all other types of traffic, as a winter storm warning is in effect until 6 a.m. Friday.
With a second round of snow coming tonight, Gov. Andrew Cuomo is advising drivers to stay off the roads.
For some earlier today, not driving on the roads, was not an option.
Despite the snow, local commuters say they would rather be safe and sound at home, but they don't have a choice but to travel in the snow because they have to get to work.
"Unless they tell you not to come in, you got to show up for work," said Amir Mukhtar, a respiratory technician.
All winter the snow has slammed our region, but if you're a taxicab driver, working in the healthcare industry or even delivering the mail, duty calls.
Rain, sleet, snow and hail. One hundred degree weather, twenty below weather, we'll be here," said Ryan Burns, a U.S. postal worker.
Workers made it into Adam's Fairacre Farms. The manager says so far the foot traffic into the store has been good. He's worried about Valentine's Day sales, but says the snow hysteria might actually help.
When people start hearing over and over, 10-12, 10-18 [inches of snow], that's when they start getting scared, that's when they start worried about getting trapped," said Mark Wheeler, the Adams Fairacre Farms general manager.
Still, most who have to be out in this mess say if you're lucky enough to be home, stay there.
