Phillip Prince has been sitting in his tractor-trailer, stuck on Interstate 40 near Groom, Texas, for hours.
Nine hours and four minutes, to be precise.
Prince and his co-driver were due in California at 1 p.m. Tuesday, where they were going to drop off 25,000 pounds of frozen pizza.
But then they came upon what the National Weather Service is calling "a crippling, historic blizzard."
"It was pretty nasty when we first got into it," he said. "But then it turned into a whiteout."
Prince, who has been a long-haul driver for nine years, says he's never seen it this bad, as he explained his situation on CNN.com's iReport
. The line of trucks is five to six miles long.
It's frustrating, the west-bound driver said, because he can see snowplows in the east-bound lanes. He hopes to get moving soon; he's down to eating his last box of Lucky Charms.
The good news is that it has stopped snowing. The winds are still 55 mph, but the skies are clear though the roads are not.
The storm has been moving east during the day, dumping records amount of snow along the way.
In Woodward, a town in northwest Oklahoma, firefighters were unable to reach a burning house because they ran into 4-foot snow drifts. The snowplow sent to dig them out also became stuck, Matt Lehenbauer, the director of Woodward, said Monday afternoon.
