Delmarva Deals With Cold Snap


SALISBURY, Md.- As painfully cold as it is this week, life is still going on for people here on Delmarva. While they may be a little more bundled up than normal, the dogs still need to be walked and the groceries still need to be bought. Wednesday, we found folks finding ways to keep warm and still carrying on with their day, in spite of the cold.

People like Corey Jones were excited to hop on the bus, not only for the ride but also for the warm relief.

"It's freezing cold, I think it's like 26 degrees," Jones said. "My hands are numb and everything."

While at the grocery store, Jamie Scoff said she is keeping her time outdoors to a minimum, and hoping this cold snap passes quickly.

"I don't like it," she explained. "I came to school down south, because I wanted to get away from the cold, and I guess I didn't go south enough. I'm from Jersey."

A steady line of customers kept the staff at Rise Up Coffee busy, as numb fingers welcomed steaming cups through the drive-through window.

"Hot cocoa, of course, because it's winter," noted Rose Bayton. "And of course for me, I need a jolt, so I got a mocha."

"I think it's horrible," added Elliot Jones. "I was just out in Colorado, and it was just as cold, and I come back here and now it's... 'cause it was like 60 degrees three days ago. This is out of control."

But not everyone was complaining. In fact, some found the frigid air refreshing.

"Well, Goldie likes to go outside in the cold and the snow, and it is a little difficult walking the dog, you have to be careful not to slip on the ice, and that type of thing, but she's pretty exhilarated by the cold weather," said Brenda Lloyd while walking her Goldendoodle

Overnight lows Wednesday were expected to fall to the mid-teens across Delmarva.
