The East Mountains were one of the hardest hit areas by the snowstorms, keeping many people inside their homes for days.

Video from 10 a.m. Wednesday shows light snow falling in the Cedar Crest area.

A lot of cars were having trouble pulling into the last gas station before arriving at I-40.

Further up Highway 14, people were using plows to clear out parking lots at Triangle Grocery and some of the local restaurants. 

Locals say this is one of the worst storms since 2004, with many saying they’ve had to hire people to plow them out of their driveways.
