This was a Groundhog Day to remember, not because Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow – 6 More Weeks Of Winter – but because the weather was forecasted to be snow and ice all day with dangerous travel conditions and … well, all we’ve seen is snow and freezing rain All Day Long.
The Governor, who closed the roads during a lesser storm last week but didn’t do anything today to keep everyone safe. A travel ban would make sense and would have given the plow drivers a clear path on which to clean the roads.
There have been plenty of accidents across Connecticut today: on state highways (the tractor trailer that was hanging off the side of a bridge in West Haven) and local roads (the car that slid on ice into an embankment in Woodbridge trapping its – uninjured – driver inside) and still people are driving out there.
The Boston Post Road is like a ghost town with nearly every business closed for the day since late this afternoon.
It is dangerous for our police, fire and EMS personnel when they have to drive in this mess when they respond to an emergency to help others.
So, Phil, I don’t think anyone, except for skiers and snowboarders really want to see winter last through the middle of March. And Gov. Malloy, well, today your judgement is in question.
