Cleaning up the shoreline’s icy mess

NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH)– The Eastern Shoreline has been walloped with heavy snow totals this season and once again it was a mess.

With the snow and the rain, New London was left with a pretty slushy mess. By mid afternoon it had warmed up and was mostly rain but before then, it was all frozen.

You couldn’t help but get wet while on the streets of the Whaling City. A slushy mess that started out quite slippery. New London Firefighters captured  images of an accident on I-95 as a car and oil truck collided.

News 8 drove by as that truck was towed away and also followed some state crews clearing away more road hazards.

In Stonington, town crews were hard at work as were residents. What better way than this to use your snow blower in the rain.

“I got this attachment a couple of year ago because it does help with a little back of the snow. It helps gives a little more protection,” said Bob Taber, Stonington.

Back in New London, un-shoveled sidewalks were full of obstacles putting some walkers in harms way.

“Yeah there have been some icy patches yeah. You’ve got to watch out here. You do, you do. Be careful people,” said Mark DeSouza, New London.

You can hear that crunching. As the temperatures are dropping ground is actually starting to freeze up again. Getting a little slippery and on an incline can be downright dangerous. So if you head out now be careful.
