"Once the temperatures start dropping then we have to step it up a little bit. Put more salt down," Peter Scerati, Penn dot manager told Fox29 News.

PennDOT will have crews out covering roads in all five counties hit with snow-- Berks, Delaware, Montgomery, Bucks, and Philadelphia.

PennDOT crews report that the Interstate roads are wet, and back roads were covered with snow. 

Scerati advises, "take their time and when you see our trucks stay behind them. Don't go around them because their trying to do their job."

Residents tried to stay ahead of the snow, food shopping, buying ice for sidewalks, and shoveling early.

"It's not too heavy it's not really wet, it's good snow blowing snow," Tim Phillips, in Reading, PA told Fox 29 News. He put down salt as a precaution against ice later forming on his driveway.
