WARMINSTER, Pa. (CBS) – Early Monday morning, the snow was scarce but the salt trucks weren’t in Warminster.
Township crews were busy salting the roads overnight, and for the most part, drivers say the trip to work wasn’t that bad.
“Just pretty wet right now, a little slushy earlier,” said Steve Sullivan, of Hatboro.
“It hasn’t been too bad, but it doesn’t look promising for tonight,” agreed Brandon MacDonald, also of Hatboro.
As if on cue, as daylight arrived, so did the snow and the wind.
It was an unwelcome sight for some.
“I hate the snow; I love warm weather. My husband likes [the snow] but not me,” said Carmela LaRocco.
It’s a joy, though, for others – like plow driver James Brown, who has endured a mild winter so far.
“Last year was a little out of control. This is the kind of stuff we like,” he said.
And should the roads get really rough, crews have one request:
“Stay home, stay out of the way, take the day off,” urged Kevin McCoy, of Hatboro.
“I don’t think I’m going to go in tomorrow if it’s any kind of craziness,” agreed John Bartley, who was heading to work. “Gotta take care of the family.”
While the roads are well treated, they are expected to deteriorate as more snow moves in.
Warminster Township officials tell Eyewitness News that they are prepared to issue a snow emergency at 4 p.m. on Monday, and Bucks County will open its emergency operations center at 7 p.m. on Monday.
