People in North Connecticut braced themselves for the full impact of this latest winter storm, as snow made travel more difficult.
"Even in four-wheel drive, it's pretty nasty out," said Misty Doherty.
Drivers along Route 8 in Torrington slowed down, as heavy snow reduced visibility and blanketed the road.
"It's a bit slippery...especially when you're going down the hills," said Christy DeCosta.
Plows from the Dept. of Transportation were out throughout the evening clearing the roads; but the snow kept coming down, making roads more treacherous.
"The ambulances are having a hard time. Cars are trying to get around them, almost causing me to go off the road in the way of the plows," said Doherty.
Other drivers said while the weather is unpredictable, all they can do to stay safe was to give themselves extra time to get around.
"We had planned to go out and do what we had to do...and drive slower, take our time," said DeCosta.
The Dept. of Transportation has more than 700 plow trucks clearing the roads across our state. They plan to stay out as long as the storm continues, to keep the roads safe.
