Weathering The Winter Storm

MONROE COUNTY — In Mount Pocono, the plows were out Thursday night, clearing snow.

The winter storm caught some people by surprise, quickly covering things with a fresh layer of snow.

“I think it’s crazy, it came so fast!” said Charity Kershner of Pocono Summit.

Charity and Steven Kerschner make money plowing snow.

“I’m glad it’s here. Might as well get some business while it’s here. Winter is here. It’s winter!” said Steven Kerschner.

On Interstate 380 most drivers tried to take it easy, slowing down as the snow came down.

“They’re going real slow, they’ve got their flashers on, at least everybody is being safe and not driving crazy, trying to avoid accidents,” said Ryan Howell of Gouldsboro.

Jay Jenny drives a tow truck and worked a long shift through the storm.

“Uhh, 20 hours, but who’s counting?” he laughed.

Messy Weather On The Last Day Of Winter

MOUNT POCONO — Snow, freezing rain, sleet:  it’s been one problem after another in many parts of our area, and all of this when we’re supposed to be heading into spring.

It’s been a messy morning for drivers again, a morning that saw one type of precipitation on top of another.

It was layer after layer of problems in Mount Pocono. A few inches of snow fell overnight followed by freezing rain. A man who worked overnight found his car entombed in ice.

It was not your average snow storm.

“Bad traction, it’s very slippery right now out there. You can’t get a good bite on it right now,” said plow driver Tom Papp of Long Pond.

Papp said the ice on top of the snow really did present a challenge.

PennDOT plow and salt trucks made pass after pass on Route 940, first getting rid of the snow, then laying down salt to melt the ice.
