Gov. Northam said he was "sick and tired" of hearing criticism over the state's I-95 storm response.




"This was a storm that we haven't seen for a long time," he told WRVA's Matt Demlein.




The governor praised the efforts of rescue workers and police officials who aided motorists.


Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam said Wednesday he was "sick and tired" of hearing criticism of "what went wrong" during the recent snowstorm that left hundreds of people stranded for hours on Interstate 95, according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch.During an interview on WRVA, a Richmond-area radio station, reporter Matt Demlein asked Northam about any updates in assessing how the huge transportation backlog transpired, especially as many were stuck in their vehicles with limited heat, minimal food options, and frigid outdoor temperatures.The Democratic governor a?? who is term-limited and will leave office on January 15 a?? forcefully rejected the line of questioning about the incident, which made nationwide headlines."I don't know why you're sitting there saying, 'what went wrong?'" Northam said. "This was a storm that we haven't seen for a long time. It started with rain, and then turned into a slushy snow of eight to ten inches ... more than what was predicted. And then after midnight, turned into essentially an ice rink."
