PRINCESS ANNE, Md.- The cold, wet, windy and snowy weather could be felt in many parts of Delmarva early Thursday morning. Some parts even saw more snow than others, which did not make for an easy ride in Princess Anne for many motorists like Cotisa Harmon.
"We actually couldn't really see anything," Harmon said, as she prepared for her shift at Hardee's on Route 13. "We then came up and saw a car in a ditch and called 911 of course, but other than that it was pretty bad out there."
Snow-covered roads and streets made it difficult for drivers to navigate their way through. And if driving was not an option, some people like Devin Little practically slid across the road trying to get catch the bus to Salisbury.
"I'm just trying to make it to work," Little said. "I've got to keep my job, but I am a little late today because of the snow."
Even with the snowy and sometimes treacherous conditions, people around the area went about their day. However, some other people like Matt Wallace said they were going to try and take advantage of what mother nature had to offer.
"Oh, it's wonderful, because as soon as I found out school was canceled I woke my boys up and we are heading up to Salisbury going hunting today," Wallace said.
William Robinson had a very early morning food delivery into Princess Anne and drove all the way from Rocky Mount, N.C.
"Oh yeah, it makes you a little nervous and jittery but you just do what you have to do with safety of course," Robinson said. "My destination is Baltimore and hopefully I can get there."
In an effort to keep some main roads clean and drivers safe, plenty of salt and plow trucks could be seen all around.
"They (drivers) need to stay behind the salt trucks and try not to pass them," said Tommy Rentschler with the Maryland State Highway Administration.
Gee Williams, who is also with the SHA, said that about 75 trucks were out plowing the roads since 2 a.m.
He said the goal was to clean up primary roads before turning the attention to secondary roads which include side streets.
Delaware Department of Transportation spokesman Jim Westhoff said that by mid-morning Thursday, about 100 trucks were working the roads in Sussex County.
