REDDING, Calif. - The snow took its toll on many Redding businesses in more ways than one Wednesday.

All over town, roads were a snowy slushy mess which made it almost impossible for employees at many local businesses to make it to work.

One of those businesses was XPO Logistics in South Redding.

One employee we talked to earlier in the day said many of his coworkers were among those snowed in Wednesday morning.

“I almost didn't make it,” truck driver Cal Hodge said. “We've got four drivers stuck on I-5 right now. One just made it in. And Bonnyview is open, but it's bad.”

Power was also out at the business, which was also a factor in their decision to close for the day.

And it was the same scenario at many other businesses throughout the city of Redding.

Hodge says they do not deal in perishable food items, so they did not lose any inventory due to power being out.

Local law enforcement agencies continue to warn drivers to stay home if they don’t have to go anywhere as road conditions are still dangerous.
