you can see a huge delay on the eastbound side. that is towards 95. your average speeds are 25 miles per hour right now. from the schuylkill to 95. drive times are up there. this is inaccurate because a few minutes ago it was about 15 minutes. he up ahead we have only the left lane getting by and now i'm having emergency issues. out in warring toirn township on 202, that is closed between bristol road and warrington pike. as you can see, over into the shoulder we have an overturned truck. we have tow trucks on the scene trying to get this situation under control and you can see the snow over into the shoulder and over into the left hand lane. but, again, that's closed.
your best bet for your alternative is right now, lower state road the covered in icy spots. matt was out driving around a few moments ago. i'm hearing you said -- where are you, matt? >> we are in lower frederick township. we are at this circle here. a lot of cars here. a lot of people heading off to work or school and the conditions on the major roads, we haven't seen too much icing, but you do have those side streets where you do have some of those patches of black ice been we have seen some slick spots and a lot of those trucks have been turned some salt down on the ground. you see a lot of the sidewalks over here, like this one right here that was untreated. just snow covered. but, really, just a coating of snow up to an inch in some parts of our area. so, really, a light dusting. might have to brush the snow off your car.
take a look, though. the ice that people have been dealing with, just outside of station earlier this morning to see that patch of ice out there. this is what you have to watch out for as you head out the door this morning. and so we also have phoenix where we stop.by where we can see some of that snow on the ground there. this is really the picturesque scene of winter that we've been waiting for and now we finally had it. but now as we come back out here live in lower frederick township, traffic moving here very smoothly. but you see some snow out here on the roadways, but those salt tricks have been doing a good job of making sure those trucks are passable. >> all right, matt. 6:35 right now. let's talk about that record breaking jackpot. we're watching to see if the
powerball will drive up even more. >> right now, it's sitting at $1.5 billion. the cash payout, one time payout, $930 million. katie zachary is in bucks county this morning for more than just coffee, right snch. >> they definitely are. lottery retailers like the one behind me, they've been selling lottery tickets for about the last hour now. and one store manager tells me he sold 500 single tickets to one man. your $1.5 billion ticket could win you a building in the city. with that much money, you would be richer than tiger woods or eagles owner jeffrey lori. what are the odds of that, right? and warren buffett and bill
gates, they're off the charts. we're not going to mention this. >> people tell me they can't help but dream. >> the fantasy of this much money, i think, is kind of worth the $237. >> and we just have a good time. i would probably take my husband away somewhere, go on trips, buy me a new house. but i wouldn't stop working. >> i would probably donate a lot of money to st. jude, of course my family, my son's college education. >> some of the most interesting comments i got is who was the first person they would tell if they won. most people said the their spouse. and then i asked, is there anyone you would keep it a street from? and most people replied, some family members. >> you know who those people would be. >> we all have the crazy uncle that we wouldn't want to know that we've had a windfall of money. by the way, you're on the board
