NEW LONDON, Conn. (WTNH)– Eastern Connecticut is the part of the state that saw the most snow. As of 5 p.m., snow was still falling in New London, but that hasn’t stopped the cleanup from beginning.
Not everyone followed parking bans, which will remain in effect until at least noon Wednesday, causing buried cars and snow mounds extending into streets. The Water Street garage was open for residents to get their vehicles off the roads. Some people have dug their buried cars out already, while others are still in the process.
A driving ban is in effect until midnight, leaving some hotel employees walking to work.
“When I walked out of my house I was up to my knees, but I found a little opening in the road and got to chucking,” said Ebony Cluff of New London. “I’ve got boots on and it’s not that bad. It’s not cold. It’s a pretty good day.”
Lots of people were happy she made it to work, but those still digging out aren’t so thrilled about their task.
