Dover Deals with Mixed Bag of Precip Monday Morning

Posted:
DOVER, Del. (WBOC) - The first places that saw snow from the storm Monday were in the northern part of Delmarva. Snow was falling in Dover by around six Monday morning. 

Throughout the morning there was snow, then a little sleet and freezing rain, then just straight up rain and then back to freezing rain. It was annoying for people starting their days, but it wasn't major. It was more of an appetizer to the full course storm about to come.

Joe Egan, a senior at Wesley College, was wearing short sleeves as snow fell around him.

"I actually love the cold," he said. I usually just wear shorts and a short-sleeved shirt."

"It's horrible. My hair is wet. It's wet out here. It's freezing cold," said Jelynn Frisby, a sophomore at Wesley.

Frisby and Egan were walking Governors Avenue to class Monday morning. Governors is one of Dover's snow routes, along with Division, Water and State Streets. City police are reminding drivers within an hour of snow starting these roads must be clear of parked cars. Vehicles still there could be ticketed and towed.

The city is also asking people to take things like trash cans away from the curb to give plows room to work. Snow routes and trash cans are things people across Delmarva, not just in Dover, can be thinking about before the worst of the storm hits.

With crews icing places like ramps into buildings, Wesley was open Monday. As of noon Monday, Tuesday was a question mark. School officials said the administration is carefully monitoring the weather.

Frisby is hoping she won't have class.

"I only have two classes tomorrow. If I don't have to go to those two classes, that would be great."

And knowing the snow could be pretty bad, Egan is prepared to hunker down.

"Me and my roommate went out and got some cases of water, got food that we need. We're ready to go."
