DELMARVA- Monday was definitely a weird weather day on Delmarva, with a roller coaster of conditions, from snow and sleet to rain.
At 10:15 a.m., Natasha Whetzel and Chase McLean were out on Chestnut Street in Milton, walking their dog Gus. At that time, the snow was coming down at a constant pace, but Whetzel said she didn't mind.
"I like it," she laughed. "But I know I've talked to other people around here who get sick of it pretty fast."
Nearby in Cannery Village, roads were covered in snow at 11 a.m., making driving conditions pretty difficult. Roxane Whittaker was outside shoveling away the snow from her sidewalk.
"It's light," she said. "It's fluffy. It's not windy.... I'll be glad when spring comes though."
Temperatures increased greatly throughout the day, compared to the bitter cold over the weekend. But for much of the early-afternoon, the snow was still on the ground, which was good news for Delaney Huxtable, who was out building a snowman with her father.
"I'm glad to see it," said Russell Huxtable, her father. "Kids really enjoy packing it in and playing in it. So I say the more the merrier."
In Georgetown the snow finally transitioned into rainfall at approximately 1:15 p.m. This washed a lot of the snow away, and turned the snowy white landscape into a murky gray instead.
"A little bit colder out this morning," said Jim Scanlin, who was shoveling his driveway. "But it's warming up now. So everything is kind of turning to slush. It's not too bad though."
