The roads are snow-covered but surprisingly a few folks are still out on the roads. Eyewitness News spoke with folks who decided to venture out in the conditions.

It’s a winter wonderland in Allentown, just as long as you don’t have to drive in it. We spoke with one driver in a pickup truck who watched the winter woes of other drivers.

“Many cars are stuck and cannot go, especially the cars that are two-wheel drive. Many cars are stuck on the street,” Bethlehem resident Leo Parc said.

For those who didn’t want to be stuck on the roadways, they ventured out on foo to capture nature’s beauty.

“This is basically just like exploring a new place and seeing what’s going on there and seeing what could be cool here,” said Colin Coleman with Moon Honey Photography.

There was a lot of beauty to take in Wednesday evening. But some of Allentown’s youngest residents were more interested in the fun.
