Chincoteague Digging Out of Heavy Snowfall

Posted:

CHINCOTEAGUE, Va.- People in Accomack County spent the day digging out from seven inches of snowfall.   

Chincoteague residents are not used to seeing that amount of snow, so many of them were surprised when they woke up to it.

"It's wicked here right now, " said Wayne Wooleyhand, who was shoveling the sidewalk outside the hotel he works for. " I mean it's beautiful, I love it, but it's hard on some of the older people who can't get around; we help them all out."

Zack Fisher, 17, dug out his 93-year-old neighbor's yard after clearing out his grandmother's walkway.

"It feels nice," Fisher said. "I like helping people. Generally, people tell me I'm a pretty nice guy and I like to live up to that."

Jeanette Phipp's desperately needed help. She said people in Chincoteague are not used to dealing with the snow.

"We don't usually have this much snow; except I remember when I was younger, we used to have a lot more snow than we have now days."

Phipps said she's grateful for Fisher's help.

"It is very nice of him. I've known him since he was a little boy."

Austin Smith came out to shovel his mother's yard. He said he can't wait for the snow to melt and the weather to warm up.

"This is probably the coldest spell we've had since '76. I'm ready for the summer, " Smith said.
