Winter Storm Impact Stirs Mixed Reaction on Delmarva

Posted:
 SALISBURY, Md.- The winter storm hampered parts of the Northeast, but left little to no impact on Delmarva, and some people are relieved.

The Maryland State Highway Administration tells WBOC crews spent the night salting roads, treatment that could not begin until the rain turned into snow last night.

When some people on Delmarva woke up this morning, most people saw a light dusting.

Demond Byrd of Salisbury had to work overnight. He was surprised when he saw the outcome of the storm that left little to no trace.

"[It's] a good thing to see no snow, but I know the kids were mad they had to get up this morning," Byrd said. “

Chris Shoun of Salisbury was disappointed.

"Well, I like the snow a little bit, since I'm a hunter. So, I was actually going to go hunting today," he said.

Snow projections put people on high alert ahead of the storm Monday. Places on the Lower Shore were expecting up to two inches. Areas north of Dover were expecting up to eight inches of snow.

Officials with the Maryland SHA said crews will be on the roads throughout the day, keeping an eye on roads conditions. 

"We're just asking people to use caution [and] just to slow down a little bit, and they should be fine,” said Gee Williams, a spokesperson for the agency.
