Just as everything is melting from winter storm Dion, Newtown and all of Bucks County get hit hard with storm number two. The Newtown Police Department is asking motorists to stay off of the roadways as condition are bad and work crews try diligently to get ahead of the mess.
Many schools and area businesses closed right away, including Council Rock School District. Calls went out to staff and students around 5:48 this morning even before the winter storm hit our area. The storm had already dumped three inches south of the area by then so the schools all closed.
This is bad for area business who had to close. This has already been a tough economic year so closing early during the height of the busy holiday season was not in the plans. Businesses are advising that if you are going out today or tonight to call ahead and be sure, they are open.
