What once took 20 minutes took longer than two hours.
That's the situation some Hazelwood-area residents found themselves in driving home during Thursday's snow storm.
Thursday's winter storm dropped several inches of snow and sleet on nearby highways and interstates, which wreaked havoc on folks looking to get home early from work.
Many of St. Louis' major highways were at a standstill for most of Thursday afternoon. Trapped in that gridlock were a few Hazelwood residents.
Other were lucky enough to leave work early.
"Took Lindbergh from Page to Missouri Bottom without an issue," said Karen Tinkham Gleason. "We have four-wheel drive and just took it easy. Did see a BMW stuck that couldn't get up one of the hills."
What about you? What was your afternoon drive like on Thursday? Did you get home on time or was your commute interrupted by slick highways?
