Snow, wind creates struggle for Pocono-area residents

Rain changed to snow in the Poconos early morning Friday and by noon about four inches of snow was on the ground in downtown Stroudsburg.

The fast falling snow snarled traffic all over the mountains.

Cars and trucks struggled to get up and down hills and many accidents kept first responders busy.

"The visibility is zero. It hits your windshield, can't see anything," said Mike Stewart.

Stewart, who drives a truck, said conditions were so bad in the Poconos his boss sent him home early.

In the Slate Belt, high winds picked up in the afternoon and brought down trees and power lines around the region.
