Heavy Snow Builds Up on Lower Shore

Posted:
 POCOMOKE CITY, Md.- Some people on the Lower Shore saw at least five inches of snow and are left to deal with the task of digging out. 

It is only the beginning for Guy Marshall of Pocomoke City who has a tough clean up ahead. Marshall woke up early to get rid of the snow that piled up on his car.

“I cleaned the car off [because I knew] it would be that much less I have to clean up when it [snow] does stop," Marshall said.

Marshall didn't get to tackle the task of shoveling out his walkway early Thursday morning, since he waited for the snow to stop falling. It was a lot more than he and others expected.

“I thought maybe at three to four inches, it would stop, but it seems to be a lot more than that right now," said Marshall early Thursday morning.

Ashley Hawk, who traveled from Salisbury to Pocomoke City for work, loves it.

“It's certainly beautiful,” Hawk said. “It was a pretty drive into work this morning; the snow on the trees is my favorite part."

People in southern parts of Delmarva, including Pocomoke City, will have to dig out of at least five inches of snow, snow that made travel on the roads challenging. Several key roads are clear now.

Crews with the Maryland State Highway Administration will be on the roads throughout the day until all of them are clear.
