As much as six inches of snow was forecast for upper Bucks. Between two and four inches were predicted for the lower and central areas, including Doylestown Township, where Roads Superintendent Paul Garr said crews began salting roads early Wednesday morning.
“We have our bins full of salt. We’re ready,” Garr said. “After last winter, I don’t think there’s anything that can spook us now.”
Last winter’s heavy and steady snowfall prompted communities like Doylestown Township to invest in raising its salt stockpiles.
“There’s slipping and sliding. You have to be careful,” said driver Deanna Cerwin.
Cerwin and Garr said salted roads won’t make up for driver awareness and caution, especially on the county’s steeper roads.READ MORE: Philadelphia School District Postpones Plans To Push Back School Start Times
“I didn’t think it would be like this. I just thought it was going to be a little sprinkle, and we’d go home,” said Max Rahman as he wrapped Christmas lights around trees in downtown Doylestown. He didn’t expect the snowfall to be so steady.
“What are you going to do? Work is work.”
Nearby, storeowner Derrick Morgan shoveled slush from outside of his store, Monkey’s Uncle. He was expecting road-and-rail weary customers to stop in before the long Thanksgiving holiday.
“Travel today, obviously, is going to be hectic for people, so I’m definitely sensitive to that.”
