    A lone car travels along a snow-covered I-84 in East Hartford Saturday night.

    Lots of people were digging out Sunday from the second snow storm to hit Connecticut in a week.
    As expected, the eastern part of the state received some of the most snow.  Towns like Higganum and Killingworth reported up to a foot of snow. 

    Northford saw about 10 inches of snow and Wallingford reported about 8 inches.
    State police reported several weather related accidents on state highways.  Route 22 in North Branford was closed for several hours after a car hit a telephone pole near Auger Road.
    Department of Transportation crews in East Hartford were out all night treating the roads. 
    Plows were out in full force making sure Interstate 84 was clear for drivers the moved onto side roads this morning. 
    AAA emergency crews responded to 746 calls for road service between 11 a.m. and 9:30 p.m.  Most of the calls were for tows to pull cars back onto the road surface after sliding off the road, according to the company.
    As temperatures drop over the next few days, ice is a big concern. The best advice moving through Sunday is to bundle up and start shoveling.
