ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Several truck drivers found themselves stuck at the Super 8 motel in Albany because of the storm.

Estes Freight Line driver Billy McConnell has been in Albany since Tuesday morning. The storm shut down the company in Atlanta and Charlotte affecting his route. McConnell says this year's winter storms are affecting his paycheck.  

"Because I can't make a living for the family you know. It's bothering my income. It causes me to take vacation days when I don't need too," said Billy McConnell.       

McConnell says company representatives told him he should be able drive his normal route at midnight.
