Areas of Kent and Sussex County are digging out from an unusual storm that left little or no snow on the northern end of the state, according to the DEOS snow monitoring system from the University of Delaware to the Delaware Department of Transportation.
A powerful storm coming out of the south led to the cancellations of many Covid-19 testing and vaccination sites in Delaware on Monday.
The heaviest band of snow occurred in an area extending from Woodside and Harrington in Kent County to Seaford and Ellendale in Sussex County. Seaford’s neighbor Laurel reported 6.5 inches with lower amounts in coastal areas.
To the north, Greenville reported no accumulation.
The storm made travel hazardous in the Washington, D.C area.
Despite moderate snowfall at New Castle Airport, President Joe Biden flew back from northern Delaware on Air Force One rather than the Marine One helicopter.
The presidential jet landed at Joint Base Andrews in near whiteout conditions with a boarding equipment malfunction delaying the motorcade to the White House by a half hour. The convoy crawled along at 20 miles an hour.
