JEFFERSON TOWNSHIP, LACKAWANNA COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — While many areas in our region saw rain, some did see snow.
“A lot of like drifts this morning, a lot of snow a lot of ice, it’s just kind of yucky,” said driver Hannah Brownson.
A wintry mess for the Monday morning commute. Depending on where you live rain, snow, and sleet passed through NEPA causing havoc for drivers.
Eyewitness News found a decent coating of snow in Mount Cobb where Brownson stopped to fill up her car with gas on her way to work. She took her time driving making her usual 15-minute commute up to a half hour.
“You don’t want to rush on this stuff because that’s the quickest way to end up in a ditch or into somebody else,” said Brownson.
Snow mainly fell in higher elevations. A welcome treat for snow removal companies.
“It’s been a really light winter so we’re actually kind of excited for the snow,” said Taylor Haggerty, an employee with Allen Builders and Landscape.
“Well it was pretty wet earlier in like Scranton Clarks Summit area, it stuck a little bit more up here, but it is coming down now,” explained Haggerty.
From salting the sidewalks to salting the roads. PennDOT truck drivers had a busy morning; treating the roads filling up at the salt shed and off to do it again.
Interstates 84, 380, and 81 are wet, slushy, and slick sometimes snow-covered but driveable. Vehicles on the roads still appear to be taking their time as they begin their week.
And if you like snow the Eyewitness News team is tracking another winter storm that will bring wintry weather on Wednesday.
“We’re looking forward to Wednesday too we should be getting more snow then,” said Haggerty.
