The wind is still gusting and the snow is still falling...and according to the newly added photos (thanks Margaret!), parts of Northford are up to almost nine inches of snow!
School closings or delays have not been announced yet, but Town Manager Bonnie Therrien confirmed reports of tricky rides home for North Branford school buses but that everyone arrived home safely.
Like the school buses, many experienced much longer commutes than normal with Therrien noting her regular 40-minute ride took three hours was "one of the worst drives I've ever had."
Therrien said that Public Works Director Fran Merola and his crews have all of the plows on the road in North Branford.
"They're working away," said Therrien. "These guys must be so tired between all of the storms."
Therrien also encouraged residents to "just stay home" as the "roads are awful."
If you do have to get out tonight, drive safe, folks!

Most weather reports told us this Nor'easter would be bringing wind and rain with the possibility of light flurries overnight...that has certainly not been the case today as snowflakes started falling around 10 a.m. and haven't stopped since.
WXedge reports that "a band of heavy snowfall has stalled over the area" and with added snow throughout the evening, "snowfall will likely total 3 to 6 inches for most of Connecticut, although totals of 7, 8 or even 8+ inches will be possible."
This photo was taken while I froze at the bus stop for 30 minutes waiting for my kids this afternoon! Do you have pictures of the snow at your house? Just click the "Add photos and video" above or below the gallery to share the scene in your neighborhood.
