Ice pellets have been coming down in the Old Saybrook/ bottom of the lower CT Valley area for the past hour and a half. But coming down in torrents . Maybe about 7- 8" of snow on the ground. Going to be like trying to move concrete around tomorrow afternoon.

The rate in Branford is unbelievable right now. Ice pellets hitting the side of the house. Lots of wind. I haven't seen this in at least a few years.

Heading out to snowblow.

It's not his job to babysit me. I can take care of myself and decide when it's safe to drive. Especially since there was barely an inch on the ground at noon.

I don't think those 2" per hr rates will but you should get a steady snow for several more hours. Storm moving away. If it was moving NNE then I would say yes.

Keep us posted if you do.

Yeah, rates getting crazy. Hard to measure too with the wind. Get an average best you can.

roads actually aren't that bad. I just got back from a quick trip to the supermarket in West Hartford. It was do able, not the worst I've ever been out in, but I wouldn't recommend it. I don't have 4 wheel drive, but I do have young all season tires. The roads and the supermarket were absolutely deserted.

Correction on my previous reply! I thought you said eastern. YES.. 1-3" per hr rates will get there. In fact are happening in Boston now.
