I'm in Hamden, and the rain and 40 degrees weather has me worried.
I remember the storm we had a couple years ago. Sometime after, it rained, and there was bad flooding.

Historic radar capture from yesterday. Central CT got crushed from this.

Rumor has it that Wallingford has only two working plows. Must be incredibly frustrating- and offsets te quick power recovery during Irene and snowtober

and conventional plows may not be adequate with the snow depth. Just saw a front-end loader plow our street in WH...finally opening up one lane!

Unfortunately, Upton tends to focus on Central Park and little else and just do "statements", not these neat charts. I'm pretty sure it was #1 for Bridgeport and possibly for Islip, LI as well (though that may not be hard to do as their record only goes back to 1984).

BTW, did you notice how almost all of the storms on the top 10 lists are since the 1980s (indeed 1990s for the most part)? I found that interesting and am not sure why. I know that New Haven and Middletown supposedly recorded 4 FEET during the famous 1888 blizzard so I wonder if Hartford's record only goes back to whenever Bradley Airport opened (I know Boston's (though obviously not at Logan Airport) goes that far back, but I'm not sure how much snow they got in 1888 (NYC "only" got 20" from it because it started out as rain there for 1/2 day).

I know the famous 1947 storm in NYC (still #2 for Central Park) was very concentrated there and a lesser storm in New England, so it makes sense it wouldn't be on their top 10 lists.

I hope everyone is well after this major storm. As a kid in W.Hartford we dug ourselves out many times. And I always tuned into Bob Steele on WTIC hoping for a "snow day"!

Uh, if the trucks were out plowing the roads during the course of the storm, they wouldn't have been stuck in their parking lots.

I think only city plow trucks (and their private contractors) and emergency vehicles are the only ones who are supposed to be on the roads now. Everyone should see their private plowing trucks make some rounds tomorrow I would imagine.

Good point, and reassuring...was starting to feel antsy (maybe cabin fever). Hope our guy shows up tomorrow...I don't want to tackle it by shovel.
