Check out the dot traffic cameras on 95 in Milford. Only one lane open. You can see heavy equipment being used to open up the highway.

Here are some pics. Before and after:




Car is dug out but still no sign of a plow. Its a half mile to the main road and the road in our complex has not been plowed yet. ;( The pavement that you do see is by us residents shoveling it. We got 30 " here. Yeah......Im done ......you can keep winter....

We thought we were in the clear for tonight's rain and freezing - only a few inches of snow left on the roof, it all blew away, right?

BZZZZZZZT

It blew - to the other side of the roof.

So we had to fall our way into the back yard (the snow just refuses to pack), shoveling snow ONTO the path we needed to take, just so we could walk ON it without ending up 4 feet deep IN it...

With this 40-foot roof rake - our feet were STILL around 1 foot deep IN the snow, and when we stretched to fling the rake up and over the roof we would often tip over backward from the impetus.

Thankfully, falling into 4 and 5 feet of powdered snowdrifts is painless. We took turns so that way we could hand each other the shovel - which we used to pull ourselves back up each time we fell

Drove down to Greenwich today and 95 was fine from Norwalk down. It's crazy what a difference 20 miles makes.

Governor ordered all non-essential state employees not to report to work tomorrow.

Still patiently waiting to get plowed out in Branford. This is crazy.

I heard Hartford is a disaster. Can anyone confirm?

Downtown Wallingford is a mess. Only a few main roads open in town. Town is saying Tues night before all roads are cleared.
