    Connecticut state offices will have a one-hour delayed opening on Thursday because of inclement conditions after a nor'easter dumped more than two feet of heavy, wet snow in parts of the state. 

    Nonessential, first-shift employees should report to work one hour from their normal reporting time, according to a statement from Gov. Dannel Malloy. 

    “As the clean-up from yesterday’s winter storm continues, we feel that it’s best to delay the opening of state offices in order to allow crews a little extra time to plow the roads and parking lots,” Malloy said in a statement. “We encourage everyone to exercise extreme caution while driving. We especially want to thank our hardworking state and local plow crews who have been working throughout the night to clear the roads across our state, as well as state and local emergency personnel and first-responders.”
