EASTON, Pa. -

Thursday evening in Easton, most drivers had the same experience on the road.

"It's bad, even four wheel drive you're still sliding you can't make it," said Amy Messner of Easton.

"I don't have any weight in the back so it's sliding all over the place, just cause you see a truck it doesn't necessarily mean they're grounded," said Danny Pistilli of Allentown.

"I'm coming from work, I work in Allentown all the way past the turnpike so I left work at 630 and I'm just making it into Easton now," said Lori Bowles, of Easton, about her trip home from work that took an hour longer than usual.

The wet snow didn't only cause slippery road conditions; many drivers had to stop to clear off their cars.

"It is sticking and that's what's causing it, I know as I was driving the ice was freezing up on my windshield even with the wipers going," Bowles said.

"I wouldn't come out if you don't have to there's nothing open, there's no reason to be out," Messner said.
