Though I haven't seen anything said for Bridgeport, I'm pretty sure this one at 30" was Numero Uno for them......and wow they are over 50" for the season now!

we just did what we had to
do...got lots more snow to shovel though..
saw everyone shovelling their sidewalks though..
which is considerate..
many people cars were covered up... how their cars start okay in the next few days...

Insane. BDR(Bridgeport,CT) has over 50 inches of snow this winter and we only passed the midway point last week. Normal snowfall to date is 16 inches... they have 51.2", that's 35 inches above normal.

New snow belt?

Cambium- You need to try and get to North Haven/Hamden/Wallingford area when roads are clear. The amount of snow here is insane. Friend who works in the town said they are saying days before roads are clear.
