Warminster Begins Digging Out of Overnight Snowstorm

Parts of Bucks and the Greater Philadelphia region saw between 5 to 8 inches of snow accumulate overnight.

The snowfall has ended, but the work was only just beginning for Warminster residents as they broke out the shovels, snow blowers and sidewalk salt.

According to the National Weather Service, the Greater Philadelphia area saw anywhere between 5 to 8 inches of snow, with some regions getting as much as 10 inches. That's rough, but not as bad as parts of Massachusetts that saw more than 2 feet of snow.

Warminster ordinances require residents with to clear sidewalks within 24 hours after the snowfall ends. Residents cannot shovel, plow or push snow onto the public roads. It is also requested that residents clear snow away from fire hydrants.

Warminster township offices are operating on a two-hour delay. Trash pick0up has been canceled. Mascaro will follow the holiday schedule: double trash pick-up Tuesday and double recycling pick-up Friday.

Why has Warminster Township not plowed or salted our streets?

As of yesterday afternoon a lot of people hadn't shoveled their sidewalks. Makes it very difficult to walk. I counted at least 6 on and near Newtown and Natale Rds. It's a disgrace.

The township needs to shovel their sidewalks too. I guess it is not in the budget to clear their own sidewalks.
