With between 20 and 30 inches of snow falling on Glastonbury, town work crews work through the night to try and keep up with the blizzard.
However, the brutal snowfall—occasionally bringing down 2-3 inches per hour—stymied efforts to stay ahead. Town Manager Richard J. Johnson said incredible effort and the size and efficacy of town machines, some still got stuck or broke chains off tires.
With few power outages in town—just 3 as for 11 a.m. Saturday, according to CL&P—Johnson said that they would not be opening the Glastonbury emergency shelters for this storm.
Johnson said he expected storm cleanup to last through the weekend through the beginning of the week, with main roads a priority today. Some roads—particularly cul-de-sacs—will have to wait until late Saturday to be cleared.
The town’s call center will remain in effect, and residents can call (860)652-7578. Emergency crews remain on standby.
