NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Cars are still moving around the streets in New Haven but it's a slow go for anybody venturing out. On Long Wharf the high winds and slippery conditions being blamed for a number of accidents already.
News 8 found a few folks on the green all bundled up earlier today, some trying to get to work. Jackson was on his walk with his owner. They just moved here from Louisiana.
"Compared to New Orleans, it's once in a maybe 5 year thing down there and this seems to be becoming a regular feature," said Nathan Williams of New Haven.
Buses stopped running and roads were slushy so some took early trains in before they start slowing down service.
"I have to work tomorrow morning so I wanted to here as soon as possible so I didn't have to worry about getting to work in the morning," said Callie Walter of Old Saybrook.
Walking is your best mode of transportation and that's what Tess did to grab some last minute groceries.
"I got lots of stuff to make a stew, vegetable stew," said Tess Korobkin.
"What are your plans," asked News 8's Stephanie Simoni.
"Stay inside, stay warm," said Korobkin.
"I don't mind snow, as long as there's a good amount of it. Snow is a good thing. It's fun to drive in, fun to walk in. It's part of New England so you deal with it," said Jerry Gray.
