I don't think all the snowfall totals posted here are up-to-date, from what I'm hearing on the news many towns got up to three feet. Incredible. We are all very fortunate that there weren't widespread power outages, especially with the single digit lows predicted for tonight.

Almost pointless posting my measley 16" pics. Especially looking at Slippermans comparison photos. Sick. Just sick. 25-35" of snow not just in one storm but less than 24hrs. How many more extremes will we have here?

At least two feet of snow in Guilford this morning.
I had to shovel my way ON to I-95 through a 3 foot berm. Off-ramps were plowed shut, cars scattered all over 95. New Haven was a mess, city plows stuck, police and ambulance up to the doors in snow. Madness.

Central CT from New Haven north up 91 got crushed. Almost 3 foot totals. The police scanner has been crazy. They can't even plow the roads. Wallingford just requested National Guard assistance as their plow truck's are immobilized.

5-7 foot drifts here.

Might be why I haven't heard a plow since last night.

Damn.

That was a "Public" posting on NWS. I tend to disregard those. There are "credible" reports of 34" in New Haven and 30" at Sikorsky Airport(which is in Stratford, although NWS always lists it as Bridgeport). National Weather Service Text Product Display

This is not meant to sound like a dumb question but what happens now? I was too young for the 78 blizzard to have an adult affect on me. The 96 blizzard want too bad when I lived in NY.......but since the state is pretty much closed off, how do they usually go about snow removal? I assume parkways/highways first?
I live in a condo with assigned spaces so I am going to dig out but my unit is the last parking area in the complex and its a half mile off of the main road. I am a bit worried about if the guys plow us can even get here.
