Winter Storm Nemo Hits Bucks County

Nemo slammed into Bucks County Friday night, leaving behind several inches of snow. It started over the area around 6 p.m. and came down into late hours of the night.
The sore spot for some was the rain. The rain coming in first, Friday afternoon, left a layer of slippery ice that cause minor fender benders all over the county. Crews worked quickly to get down salt and clean the roadways for those who had places to go but it was hard to keep up.
When people woke up this morning, they found a winter wonderland that was the first real snowfall of the season. The Newtown and Warrington areas are reporting four to five of the white stuff, other places reporting only two to three inches.

The roads all over Bucks County are looking great, thanks to the road crews working throughout the night. On Saturday, the new problem is the wind. The wind is blowing at about 18 mph and gusts are up to 33 mph. This is going to diminish visibility and make driving difficult, as well as, blowing snow into large banks along roadways. All offices and business are reporting on Facebook that they are open with very few closings anywhere.

“We’re Freezin’ for a Reason”

More Than 40,000 Voters Converge on Bucks County, Pa.

With the election only one short day away, both sides are after every last vote they can get. Mitt Romney came to Bucks County, Pa., on Sunday looking to win over the Pennsylvania voters along with their 20 electoral votes, on their road to the 270 votes needed to become President. The scene was set at Shady Brook Farms in Yardley, Pa., on Nov. 4 at 5:30 pm.
People braved the freezing temperatures and bitter cold winds to listen to what area Republicans and Romney had to say. The crowds listened intently and shouted things like "send him home" and "two more days." Signs were held high with phrases like Kids for Romney, Nobama, and Women for Romney and the Republican Party did not disappoint. They told the voters from Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Bucks County just what they wanted to hear. Taxes are coming down; they will work to help small business, and they would work to repeal Obamacare.
