NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Feet may be for walking, but chances are most who have to trek the streets of downtown New Haven are not enjoying moving through the wet mess that is outside.
Winter 2015 has been full of snow that’s been stacking ever upwards, and has few places to go when it melts on a warm day.
“I’m tired of this snow,” said pedestrian Shemeka Wells of New Haven.
Much of the snow melt is ending up on the streets and on sidewalks, creating a mine field of puddles that everyone has their own way navigating. There are those who freeze in utter confusion, others that plow right through, and then there are people who try to avoid the puddles all together. Whatever the method, finding your way around the newly-formed ponds may soon be getting a little harder as weather experts are predicting a deep freeze is on the way.
But, like a nice stroll there’s a good chance most pedestrians will take the changing temperatures in stride, this is winter in Connecticut after all.
AAA recommends if you are driving in wet conditions to avoid using cruise control, slowing down, and leaving plenty of room between you and other vehicles.
