Governor Cuomo has banned buses and tractor trailers from traveling on most of the Thruway in the storm. The ban went into effect on Saturday afternoon.

Several dozen truckers were waiting out the storm at Pilot Truck Stop in Schodack, unable to reach their destination until the roads are clear.

The truckers realize it's safety first.

The good news is they will be well-rested to continue their travel when the ban is lifted.
