Post Pre Holiday Storm

Storm Recap below video!

What an interesting storm! Snow accumulations ranged from 2 inches to 2 feet! If the storm came onshore 50 miles closer, the entire state would have seen double digit snowfall accumulations. If the storm was a little further offshore we would have seen little to nothing. There was such a sharp gradient!

Here are snowfall totals. The first two links are from the National Weather Service.

Hartford, Tolland and Windham Counties

Fairfield, New London, New Haven, Middlesex Counties
CT DOT Reports (from across the state)

We did our first weekend morning cut-in on Sunday from 5:50 AM - 8:00 AM. It was great! We had Garett Argianas, Joe Furey and myself all covering the storm. Now that we have joined the Courant, our new mission is to truly be a station that the public can count on in any news and weather situation. There I go sounding corney again. Anyway, it was a little exhausting since all three of us were also on the News at 10 Saturday night before the storm! Here is one of my live hits from Sunday morning!
