After multiple warnings of a “snowpacolypse” with no delivery in previous weeks, no one knew just how bad the storm would be today. Forecasters varied from station to station. Nevertheless, what was known was that there would undoubtedly be snow on the roads.
After attending church with my younger brother and his family in Gloucester County this morning, I loaded in to my van and began the treacherous drive home as the snow fell harder and faster than any anticipated
All I wanted was to go home. I had a long weekend and my bed was calling my name. However, I quickly became scared, frustrated, and down right disappoint as I entered Salem County.
It was like I drove in to another world. The roads were treated with much less of a salt and brine mixture than the county I had just been in. I didn’t see any snow plows and the back roads were a nightmare.
As my parents and I slid and spun the last leg of our journey home through Salem County, I couldn’t help but wonder why things were so different with our roads. Clearly there is a disconnect.
