It's a mess out there | WTNH.com Connecticut
Quote:
(WTNH) - Once again Connecticut residents are plowing, shoveling and snowblowing their way out of inches of snow, in some cases, up to two feet.

Steve in East Haddam says he received about 24 inches, Rachel in Westbrook reports 20 inches, and Dana in Wallingford reports 18 inches. Click here to see more snow totals.

The snow really ramped up in the overnight/early morning hours. "Snow rates were four to four and a half inches an hour overnight," Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Gil Simmons said.

The snow was falling at such a rate during the early morning hours "there's no way we can keep up with that snowfall," Jeff Adams of the Department of Transportation said earlier in the morning.

Tractor trailers were ordered off Connecticut highways until 10:00 a.m.

"All motorists & truckers are asked to stay off roads until snow winds down and DOT has a chance to clear interstates," Gov. Dannel Malloy's office said in a statement on Twitter.

Not many truckers seemed to heed the ban; a truck got stuck on I-95 in Darien bringing traffic to a standstill.

Even though there was bare pavement on some highways, "entrance and exit ramps are not clear yet," Lt. J. Paul Vance said. "It's still pretty dangerous out there."

It's nowhere near clear," said News 8 reporter Kent Pierce, who was on I-91 in the News 8 Mobile weather lab in North Haven.

It was trouble no matter how you travel. Metro-North suspended service on the New Haven Line, and CTTransit canceled bus service.

Gov. Malloy ordered all non-essential state employees to not report into work until Noon.

"If you ever wanted to know what it's like to live in Buffalo, New York, you're experiencing it now," the governor said in a telephone interview on News 8's Good Morning Connecticut.

Malloy will be briefing the media again at Noon.

As the governor dealt with state-wide problems, mayors and selectmen dealt with their own local problems.

"People really need to stay home," New Haven Mayor John DeStefano. "Most streets in the city are not passable as of 5:30 this morning."

Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch said City Hall would not open until Noon. "Snow Emergency in effect. Please shovel out hydrants. Move your cars off public streets," he said in a post on Twitter.

"We've picked up about 11 inches unofficially," Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton said.

"Our biggest challenge is where do you put all this snow," the mayor said said. "There's just no more room anywhere."

The big storm was out of the state a little after 7:00 a.m., replaced by bright sunshine and blue sky. But for a while it was a mess.

"There was one point around Midnight where you could not see anything at all," said Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Dr. Mel said. "It was a white out."

Dude, I'm so sick of it. So very sick of it. Even the plow, which didn't come until an hr ago is still working in the circle out front, Got stuck for a good 20 minutes, and has been shoveling with a bunch of my neighbors...

Before the plow, 9:45ish this was taken...

This is the TINY little town I grew up in.
I asked Kayla's girl scout leader if we could do anything to help them as a troop, so we're trying to get the info for some dinners they are planning and go serve food, etc.. Plus we're collecting items for the families who lost it all.

Julia Gillard faces voter backlash over flood tax | Latest news on the Queensland Floods | News.com.au

Because apparently we have a psychic PM who knows that "all Australians want to make a contribution". If that was the case (and there have been millions upon millions raised in donations already) then why would there be a need for another tax? Oh that's right... coz they won't cut money from other things that we don't really need.

Everyone is going crazy about this. It's rather odd that 13 of the players have this disorder. It would be easier to digest if it was 2 or 3, but 13! Jeepers!
