Cold Temps Hit Delmarva, More to Come

Posted:

LEWES, Del. - Friday was just one of those days where you wish it were summer. WBOC took a visit to Surf Bagel in Lewes Friday morning, where the shop was full of people trying to stay warm.

"People buying a lot of soup," said John Sapienza who was working the cash register. "A lot of soup, a lot of coffee, a lot of hot wraps."

Meanwhile, down the road in Rehoboth Beach flagger Roosevelt Williams was feeling the chill.

"I've got three pairs of pants on," he said. "Three shirts. A hoodie and a jacket. And two pairs of gloves... Gotta stay warm out here."

The cold temperatures also made firefighting a challenge. The Millville Fire Department told WBOC that they responded to a fire on the 34,000 block of Vine Creeks Road, just after 4:00am. Deputy Chief Cody Lockwood said that the cold temperatures and the high winds exacerbated an already tough situation.

"The cold that we encountered caused ice within 15 to 20 minutes," he said. So all the ground ladders we were using to get in the windows were covered in ice. Trees were covered in ice. The road was covered in ice. We had a hose line freeze."
