Heavy, wet snow blankets Milford
In Milford this morning the snow was heavy and wet and it looked like there was about seven inches on the ground at 10:30 a.m. The main roads were clear earlier in the day, but still not great for driving because the snow continued to fall.
By about 1 p.m. with snow easing up and finally stopping, the main roads were in good condition as melting started already.
The shoreline was quiet, with no violent waves like we saw during the last storm.
The snow created a pretty picture around Milford because the snow was clinging to trees and to the reeds along the harbor.
But all that heavy wet snow on the trees is starting to weigh the branches and power lines, which could be a problem later on.
At 11 a.m., UI had reported 65 power outages in Milford, out of its 27,047 customers.
Mayor Ben Blake reported no major problems with this, the second significant snowfall of the season.
Traffic was light on the roadways earlier, allowing plows to clear the streets. Blake said it helped that Milford schools were canceled.
"Dr. Feser made the right call in canceling school," he said.
