[Original Story] The nor'easter took its time moving toward Southbury, but now that it's here the snow is starting to pile up and impacts are beginning to be felt — in town and across the state and region.
Early this morning, along with the snow came a blizzard of school closures, and Region 15 was among the districts on that list.
The latest forecast from the National Weather Service is predicting that we'll get about 2 to 4 inches of new snow today, March 8. The snow will give way to rain and periodic snow showers after 4 p.m., the weather service says.
Winds will be relatively strong today, between 16 and 22 miles per hour, according to the forecast. That shoud make the mid-30 temperatures feel a bit colder.
The wind, coupled with wet, heavy snow, also presents the possibility of power outages. As of 9:30 a.m., 39 homes in Southbury were without power, according to CL&P.
On the upside, tomorrow is supposed to be a bright, sunny Saturday. And there's a lot going on in town and others around us.
