Rain creates challenges on roads, drives delivery business

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – The seasons are in transition as winter dissolves into spring, a process some might say is corroding Connecticut’s roads.

“It makes you sad,” said Deedee Hawley who works in New Haven. “You just can’t wait for spring, I’m ready for all this to melt.”

On Saturday, anywhere from half an inch to an inch of rain fell across the state.

When the rain combined with melting snow the impact was evident on many roadways. On some streets potholes looked more like tiny pools.

But when rain is falling most it appeared tried to say indoors, unless that is they had to outside because it was part of their job.

“I’ve driven in all the snow storms that we’ve had,” said Liz Urbani, who delivers food for Abate’s in New Haven.

Urbani says when she’s out there in her car delivering pizza pies in wet weather its important people remember to keep it slow and to leave plenty of distance between you and other cars because you never know when you might have to hit the brakes.

“Its just the other people on the road is really what scares me the most,” said Urbani.

Safety is something Liz had to be mindful of all day because over at her place of work they were cooking up the pizzas fast and sending her out the door again and again.
