Hartford Cleans Up After Wednesday Snowstorm

View Comments (


    People across Hartford spent hours on cleaning up after the snowstorm Wednesday night.

    Kumar Ramanan was one of dozens digging out. A foot of snow piled up on the driveway outside his Fairfield Avenue home. Ramanan said he spent the day shoveling.

    “I’m exhausted," Ramanan said. "It’s never ending it goes on and on."

    Crews worked non-stop to haul truckloads of snow from downtown Hartford parking lots in time for the Thursday morning commute.

    Plows were also out treating the roads.

    Getting around after the storm was a challenge for many, and many cars ended up stuck in the snow, including one on Maple Avenue.

    “It’s a little difficult," said driver Anthony Rodriguez. "You've got to take it easy on the roads.”

    Fabio Rosario was taking care of sidewalks at city schools. Kids would be back in a matter of hours and there was still a lot to do.

    "We've got to do it to keep the schools safe,” Rosario said.
