Delaware SnOMG.

Filed in Delaware by on January 21, 2012

So how are the roads out there. I have a party to go to at 11, so hopefully it is all cleared up by then. Here is an update from Jim Westhoff from DelDOT.

Motorists in Delaware should expect to see slick roads this Saturday morning, as a winter storm visited the state overnight, the heaviest of the snow and ice being in New Castle county. Statewide, more than 300 DelDOT employees worked through the night, most starting at about 11 p.m., spreading salt, and keeping the main roads snow and ice free.

New Castle County

While the travel lanes of I95 and I495 are primarily clear of snow and ice, the shoulders and off ramps are slick with light amounts of snow and slush. Other roads throughout the county remain passable, but are covered in a thin layer of snow and ice. Drivers should plan to take extra travel time if they are driving this morning. Crews are currently pushing snow, as well as continuing to spread salt.

Kent County

Route 1 is clear, but all other roads in the county may be covered in snow and ice. Crews in Kent County are also currently pushing snow, as well as continuing to spread salt.

Sussex County

Minor roads are covered in a thin layer of snow and ice, but major roads are clear. Crews continue spreading salt.

    Luckily I stocked up on milk, bread, eggs, water purification tablets, gold bullion, freeze dried food, and all the available season of ‘Arrested Development” on DVD.

    Ammo is useless without a gun. Watch out Jason, she is going to throw bullets at you.

    Thanks for re-posting the release, DD. If you drive slowly and cautiously, you should get to your destination okay. But remember, don’t pass any plow that has its blade down or is applying salt. Or you can stay home and take the lead of the long-suffering Mrs. Westhoff, and try out some new chili recipes. Drive safely everyone.

    I love chili! Shoot, I should have thought of that! Instead I’m taking a stab at homemade mushroom and spinach manicotti.

    Thanks Jim. I will. Where I am going to is having some Chicken Chili today I hear. Now that does sound good.

    Perfect. Can anyone recommend a good breakfast beer?
