DOVER, Del. - Slush began accumulating on the roadways in Dover just after lunchtime, but it did not to seem to keep motorists away from daily commute.
In Georgetown, a light dusting and some icy rain hit the area early Tuesday afternoon. The situation quickly turned to heavier snowfall in some areas.
Before all that, roads were already prepped.
WMDT caught a Georgetown public works crew on camera, salting town sidewalks and preparing for the worst.
Public works director Bill Bradley says crews will be out through "the duration of the storm."
"I've got two crews ready, running in shifts," said Bradley.
The Sussex County town activated its snow emergency plan at 1PM, restricting parking alongside designated snow emergency routes, clearing up roads for emergency crews.
According to town manager Gene Dvornick, Georgetown's designated snow emergency routes include the following: East and West Market Street; North and South Bedford Street' Bridgeville Road; East and West Pine Street; North and South Race Street; North and South Front Street; East and West Laurel Street; Edward Street; and West North Street.
"It makes it very easy for the plows to go up and make a pass by and then they can just go in a constant loop around to keep those open," said Dvornick.
As for the state, Delaware is under a level one state of emergency, which means it's recommended that all non-essential employees should try and stay off the roadways.
If it's upgraded to level two, only persons designated as essential personnel can be out on the roadways, which includes police and emergency crews.
