Winter storm cleanup begins in New London | Connecticut News


NEW LONDON, CT (WFSB) – It was a big cleanup day for much of the state, especially the eastern part of the state.

In New London many of these side roads are still covered in snow and Norwich looks the same.

This is one of the reasons Norwich School District has decided to cancel school tomorrow.

More than 20 inches of snow blanketed most of New London County.

While the snow was lovely, for Lisa Crowley it also caused some problems: “I had parked in my disabled space on Broad Street in New London, and they had rammed me in and I couldn’t make it myself.”

So, Crowley went to Facebook and found Fabian Hernandez. He said he helped shovel four houses yesterday. “Right now, today, I’ve done like four, five houses.”

He posted on Facebook saying he was ready to help anyone in need. So Crowley asked if he could dig up his car.

“Hospitality, money, that’s good, but really, it’s just to help people,” Hernandez said.

“That’s wonderful. That’s why I went straight to the website because I knew New London Fort would help and Fabian said I’d be right there,” Crowley said.

Crowley was one of hundreds who had to dig their cars through deep snow today.

So many are preparing for the work week and school.

M&J Bus officials say their crews have been clearing bus roofs and making sure lots are cleared of snow for tomorrow.

The bus company says it hopes cities will continue to plow secondary roads because some could use some labor.

Norwich Public Schools had to cancel school as many of the city’s roads are still covered in snow.

They sent a note to families saying in part, “the amount of snow was too much for City staff to remove in one day.”
