Some more stuck car photos, both of these on Long Island/Suffolk County:





As you can see by the sun, the 2nd photo was taken (supposedly according to the FB site I got it from) only an hour or 2 ago. Any scenes like this still in CT, I imagine there must be some.......by me many roads are clear, when cleaning my car I only measured about 10" or so even though spotters in towns bordering me are claiming 20" (southern Westchester county).....still a lot but not what most of CT saw.

OK I have a couple of CT pictures from that site, including one taken just an hour ago:

Recent picture of an elementary school in Shelton with drifts up to the roof, wow!



Street in New Britain. I don't think it's "stuck cars", just parked ones and one in the road, maybe stuck, maybe a 4x4 getting thru

I live on a tertiary street in Fairfield, and no snowplow has appeared yet. The town says it will take until tomorrow late in the day to get all the streets cleared.

Really worth the risk of a rollover so you can maybe get through a snowstorm that happens once in a lifetime? Invest in a snowmobile. Makes more sense.

What do you think the likelihood is that they will have this cleaned up in time for Monday morning? I'm wondering if schools will be able to open. Our street was partially plowed sometime last night before the snow stopped. I haven't seen one all day so I have no idea whether or not the rest of the town is driveable.

Interesting question.....if one uses 1978 or 1996 as a guide (or the 2010 storms for that matter), a lot of schools will be closed Monday and open Tuesday. But I think quite a few are going to be tempted to simply open late to avoid having yet another day to makeup given all the "Sandy days", etc......
