Snow day in Wallingford

January 18th, 2012 · No Comments

It’s been snowing since the wee hours of the day, and Wallingfordians are out in droves; walking dogs, getting coffee, and taking the kids sledding.

Rachel, who works at the Chocolati Cafe on N. 45th St. said people have been coming in droves. “It’s been really crazy,” she said. “I think people are out walking around and having fun.” And, getting coffee it would seem. Nearly a dozen people streamed through the door while we were speaking.

Sledding, snow football, and cross country skiing were a few of the activities at the Wallingford Playfield.

While traffic was light, the buses seemed to be moving along at a steady pace. The roads are still considerably slick, and nearly half a foot of slush lined the streets down 45th St.
