I walked to my car tonight put on my gloves and started to brush off snow. I know this kind. I’m a snow connoisseur. It was wet, clung to surfaces and iced under tires. I’m guessing a 7:1 water:snow ratio.
Some of you are nuts! I drove home on I-91. More cars had spun into the woods than I ever remember. They must have called in extra State Troopers. Each of the accidents had one or two!
I-91 was in worse shape than I expected. On my drive from Hartford to Meriden I passed no plows or sanders. There was one on the Wilbur Cross, but he was getting off at the exit for the yard.
The roadway was covered by a very thin and slick layer. My ‘carmometer’ read 33° or 34° all the way, but the ground is colder than the air.
Helaine will probably get upset at me for saying this, but the snow is very pretty tonight. Looks are deceiving.
