Blizzard-Blasted New London: Add Your Photos And Videos

City works to dig out after it is blanketed in snow

The nor'easter that slammed into Connecticut on Friday and Saturday left much of the region paralyzed, with roads closed to non-essential traffic or snowed over and impassable. According to the National Weather Service, snowfall observations in New London County ranged from 15 inches in Stonington to 31 inches in Colchester.

People worked to dig out cars, clear sidewalks, or otherwise get out from underneath the enromous snowdrifts. But a few tenacious businesses opened their doors to anyone willing to venture out, and the snowfall also presented an opportunity to finally build a snowman or go sledding.

I went into downtown New London and Fort Trumbull on Friday evening and Saturday morning and came back with these photos and video. We're looking for your contributions as well, so if you have some good images or footage of the storm feel free to upload it to this gallery.

Any photos of Riverside? The sledding must be a blast.

From the Day http://theday.com/article/20130210/NWS01/130219990 "Mayor Daryl Justin Finizio said all city streets are expected to be cleared today but is asking residents not to shovel snow from sidewalks and driveways into the street" This guy is an fool and an idiot.The streets will never be cleared today, during a normal storm it takes longer than a few days. This man lies to the community every time he speaks

Tammy Daugherty If your street has NOT been plowed...please list it here. We are collating a list for PW to make sure everyone has had at least one pass through with the plow by the end of the day. Thank you for your help. Like · · Share · 53 minutes ago near New London · POSTED ON FACEBOOK. What a technological break through to find out if the PW people have done what they are paid to do. The idiocy in the Daryl administration is just unbelievable.

And this after the clueless mayor stated in the Day that he expects all streets to be cleared today. Too funny. Does the right hand in this administration know what the left is doing? What is the truth are the streets going to be cleared or will they get a single pass with a plow if they only have facebook.

Shermor Place has still not been plowed. Is this because Mike Buscetto owed a house on this street? Well he sold it this week! Henderson (behind Shermor-same size as Shermor) was plowed yesterday afternoon. Who lives there? They also get the street sweeper, something we rarely see.

Comments on street clearing (or lack thereof) are probably more appropriate for this article: http://newlondon.patch.com/articles/residents-express-frustrations-over
