Poof … It Is Snowing Hard In Sussex County
Careful what you wish for it is snowing like gangbusters out here in the country. All day everyone on social media has been complaining where is the snow, now people are complaining where are the snow plows.
Route 1 below Dover is proving to be a disaster now due to accidents and jammed up traffic. Near the beach there is less snow, but out here in the country we are seeing a lot of snow coming down really fast. It is picking up at the beach now too.
At this rate I will be car hooding in a matter of hours. In one hour we have over an inch of snow. It is supposed to do this all night but taper off after midnight, so we might get buried, just a late arrival. Glad today’s rain was not snow.
The DelDOT app won’t help you find the snowplows it is having some “issues”. Honestly who cares where the plows are, they can’t do the whole state at once, and the north got walloped earlier today. We are going to be the last to see any plows and no the roads weren’t treated because treating in the rain is pointless.
If you area flooded a little look on the bright side,the road is clear.
Time to fire up the woodstoves and eat some hot chili, tomorrow is a day off … well sort of.
