Storm quickly moves through area; dumps some snow

The Lehigh Valley is covered in white tonight after about two inches fell on the area. Not a big blanket of it, only a fraction of the 32 inches or so that we average for the season. But it is enough to be trouble when you consider how frigid it is out there.

"I like about snow that it snows a lot and you get to play in it," smiled 6-year-old Elias Campbell.

Kids love it, drivers don't. Mother nature was to blame for the slow commute home tonight.

"I didn't even know it was going to snow," said Inmer Salvador. "I was kind of surprised."

"Hopefully it stops," added Chris Simmons. "I'm sick of the cold already."

Folks hitting the roads had to deal with slick spots. Luckily they were all taking their own advice.

"Go slow because you don't know where the slippery spots are," said Ginny Fehnel.

"A little bit of spinning out on the hills and things like that but for the most part it's okay," explained Simmons. "Just go slow and you'll be okay."

"Just take it easy, just take it slow," shared Angela Wells.

The dusty powdery snow isn't hard to clean off the car or sidewalk, and you might even find beauty in it if you take the time to look.

"It's actually really cool looking because it's like diamonds everywhere so it's really a neat snow," smiled Simmons.
