One Year Ago Tonight: Traffic Snarled During Freak November Snowstorm
If you had a bad week, you should take comfort in knowing that it could have been worse. A lot worse. Yeah, one year ago today our area was experiencing a pretty large (and sudden snowstorm) that left motorists stranded on the roads for HOURS across our area.
The forecast for November 15, 2018, called for about an inch of snow, but by mid-afternoon, it was apparent that we were going to see significantly more snow. As motorists raced out of work in the middle of the afternoon during the height of the storm… traffic became a standstill. We saw reports that afternoon of commutes from Princeton to Edison taking 5 hours:
State officials told our sister station NJ1015 that there were more than 400 crashes on New Jersey's highways by 4:30 that afternoon.
In our area here were the final snow totals:
Northern Princeton - 5.4"
Princeton - 4"
Ewing - 4"
Hamilton - 3.8"
Springtown - 8.5"
Quakertown - 5.5"
Morrisville - 5"
Bensalem - 4.5"
Florence - 4.2"
Mount Laurel - 3.8"
Bordentown - 3.5"
Philadelphia - 3.6"
Here are some more photos from Twitter from the storm:
