Stratford, off Long Beach Blvd. Apparently, we will be closed tomorrow.

Without your posts, those of us who "just" had 8-20" wouldn't know how bad it really is in the areas that got 28"+. We can only imagine. So thanks for keeping us in tune with things. Bulldozers are still clearing sidewalks and roads around here and we only got 20". It's crazy some haven't gotten plowed out and the pics are incredible.

Thanks for posting Uptons graphic Brian26.

So its official. Largest snowstorm ever recorded at BDR (and probably the entire area around them). Islip and Uptons largest as well.

And just 3 months ago, we had the largest snowstorm for the month of November.

I heard both 30" and 36" here in Meriden. It's still a mess, at least around where I live. I finally saw a plow a little while ago, and he got stuck.

Last I heard, Meriden roads were only 28% passable.

Roads are pretty much one lane around here and mostly pedestrians.

And... my ceiling is leaking. :|

It's a moderate disaster. The main arteries are clear, but a shocking number of side streets have not been plowed even once. People have been stuck at home for 3 days now. West Hartford is a little better.

I haven't been downtown however. Tomorrow will be a traffic nightmare. Today, I-84 was a complete shambles (as seen from the Prospect Avenue overpass)

If these roads are not plowed soon, people will start to run out of heating oil, which will be a major disaster.

Nuts. My neighbor works at an insurance company up there. I certainly hope all of those companies do the right thing and close until this can get back to normal.

DWs office is in Stamford and closed since many of their employees come from the Trumbull/Stratford/Milford/Fairfield/Valley area, and can't get out.

Oh my gosh! That picture would be funny if the situation weren't so awful. I hope things return to normal sooner rather than later.
