Some truck drivers were stranded for at least 15 hours at a service station, unable to move.

"Around 15 hours I have been stranded, 15 hours, and I don't know, it all depends on the weather. We may have to stay the entire day here"

Spain's transport minister said Saturday that 847 snow ploughs were operating, and over 156-thousand tons of sodium chloride and sea salt were on hand to battle the snowfall on roads and highways.
