Abington Township Police say they’ve already responded to several minor accidents from Thursday morning and they’re urging people to stay home.
“As people drive on them, it turns into ice and that makes it even more treacherous for people, so that’s another reason why it’s critical people stay off the roads for us,” Abington Police Patrol Sgt. Jennifer Doyle said.
At the nearby Home Depot in Willow Grove, they’re trying to get ready for spring, but the storm isn’t helping. Some equipment, like grills, were covered in plastic, with several inches of snow on top.

“We got short people problems. We short, so we gotta stick together, for one. And if I can help her and make her get home safer, why not?” Carroll said.
