Tri-State Area: Blizzard Warning Added For Coastal Connecticut

NOAA added my area (coastal Connecticut) to the Blizzard Warning. I'm also now forecast to get 8 to 12 inches of snow in the next 24 hours.

While none of this might sound like much snow to people living in certain parts of the US and the world, clearing the roads is the problem in this area due to the density of roads.

According to a 2006 CT DOT Public Road Mileage report, Connecticut's total land area is 5,121 square miles and it is covered with 20,892 miles of roads. So when we get this much snow in this short amount of time, the end result is second and tertiary roads may become impassable (because they don't get plowed).

I'm just hoping I don't lose electricity.
