Several Schools Delayed as Snow Fell Across State

Students in several cities and towns started school late on Friday morning after snow fell across the state and there were some issues on the roads. Two of the most serious were school bus crashes in Avon and Manchester, but no injuries were reported

Snow fell steadily in Groton and crews spent the morning trying to keep sidewalks and other walkways clear. 

"Underneath the snow it's still very icy, so I slipped a couple of times, which is why I am walking in the street," said Frank Accomando, of Groton, who took the bus instead of driving.

In Hamden, light snow created a pretty backdrop for people who were out in the morning, including Robert Nelson, who was walking his dog, Polo.

"I love it," he said. "I love this and even this little guy loves this so that's the reason we're out here this morning, trying to get it in before it disappears on us." 

The rest of Friday, starting in the afternoon, will be dry and temperatures will remain below freezing, but another storm is approaching on Saturday.

Another warm-up is in the cards by the middle part of next week, when highs could touch 40 degrees.

Along with the renewed warmth comes the chance for rain on Wednesday and Thursday.
