    A strong cold front moved in late Tuesday, delivering some very cold air for the day Wednesday and into Thursday, and some Connecticut residents were greeted by snow squalls Wednesday morning and gusty brings have brought down trees in several communities.

    Trees have come down in Farmington and Middletown. The most tragic incident happened in Avon. A school bus driver was killed when a wind brought a tree down on a school bus and the bus hit a pole.
