Snow makes roads a slushy mess

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– Monday’s snow made for another messy commute. Whether you were driving or walking, it was a slushy mess.

Just when we were getting used to beautiful snow-less days, that fluffy white stuff came back and hit Connecticut roads and sidewalks fast and furious.

“It was very wet, very sloppy, very nasty on the shoes,” said Patricia Ranney.

And nasty on the roads too.

Though shovels and plows were hard at work, so was the snow, falling nonstop since early Monday morning.

Before drivers have to battle the snow-covered roads, they have to put in some work just to get to them.

“It was a lot of hydroplane like the car was sliding a little bit, and snow was pretty. It was coming down pretty hard,” said Jeffrey Guity.

With the winter we have been having, people are becoming experts at dealing with snow and cold. Patricia Ranney cleaned off her car, even though she didn’t have to go anywhere right then.

“Because it’s supposed to get colder later and I don’t want all this snow to freeze on top of my car, so I don’t have to chip it off,” said Ranney.

But she isn’t stopping there.

“I’m shoveling the street so that the snow plow doesn’t plow me, in which it probably will anyway,” said Ranney.

Being proactive like Patricia might keep you from getting stuck later.

If you are going to be out and about in the snow, you are going to need two things: a snow scraper for your car and shovel in case you find yourself in a difficult parking space.

After a hard day of battling another dose of winter blues, the reward will be getting ready to do it all again.

“I think it’s snowing Wednesday, right so it’s going to get even worse,” said Guity.
