Prepping for Possibility of Snow in Sussex County
LEWES, Del. - Sussex County may see a chance of snow Tuesday evening.
When traveling in the snow, AAA says to increase your following distance to five to six seconds, know your brakes, accelerate and decelerate slowly, don't stop going up a hill, and don't power up a hill.
"I suggest buy salt. Put salt in the back of the car, also for nice weight, [and for] traction if you get stuck, put a little bit [of salt] down by the tires, it'll get you out. Always keep a small shovel on hand," says Mike Clow, manager of Ace Hardware in Lewes.
In case of emergencies, Clow suggests residents buy plumber candles, stock up on kerosene or propane, and make sure heaters are working properly.
