Drivers left their cars on I-95 to walk their dogs in order to pass time while stranded for hours on the icy roadway, one source told Fox News. 

Darryl Walter, opened up to Fox News about his experiences being stuck on Interstate-95 after about posting on Twitter about the ordeal.  

"We spent 11 hours yesterday driving from Rocky Mount, NC, to Bethesda, MD (after spending 14 hours the previous day driving from Sarasota)," he told Fox News. "At one point we were at a standstill for over four hours on I-95 North. We passed the time by taking our dog for a walk on 95, reading, and playing Trivia Pursuit."

Walter said he had water, fruit and chips with him and watched trucks stopped in the middle of the road as they started moving.   

"There were large stretches of road that had yet to be plowed even though a plow could of gotten there," he shared. "We actually feel fortunate as we were driving toward the Beltway as 95 South was backed up and stopped a good 15 miles. The people on that side were stuck all night in their cars. We were able to get home last night."
