Salisbury Deals with First Winter Snowfall

SALISBURY, Md. - Sunday's snowfall in Salisbury meant some extra work for people Monday morning.  Fortunately for those who were out and about, the roads appeared to be in decent shape in and around the city.

Shovels and windshield scrapers were a common sight around Salisbury on Monday morning.  It was an unavoidable task for Sendar Manizade.

"This is kind of leisurely.  I am enjoying being outside because I don't have to be anywhere.  In face I have to go in and some work work inside but while I was out, I figured I'd help the sun do the rest of the work," said Manizade.

And while the sun may be able to help on some windshields, the frigid temperatures made it tough for the snow to really begin to melt.  Good news for all of the kids around the city who spent plenty of time building snowmen.  In fact, there seemed to a couple snowmen on just about every block.  There were plenty of people who took full advantage of the season's first snowfall and seemed to enjoy it.  

The road conditions on Monday also made dealing with the leftover snow more manageable.  Crews in Salisbury salted the city's seven snow emergency routes on Sunday afternoon and road crews in Wicomico County salted the county's main collector roads Sunday afternoon and evening.  Overall, the only handful of trouble spots were on side or residential streets that did not see a lot of traffic.

And while it may have only been the first snowfall of the season, some already hope that Old Man Winter goes back into hibernation.

"It's pretty, sure.  But after the last couple of winters, I wouldn't mind having a mild winter," Manizade said.

But Old Man Winter could be popping up again very soon on Delmarva.
