The snow and ice was a concern Monday on the ground as crews cleared roads and sought places to put the piling snow, but South Windsor police are also warning residents about a danger from above – icicles.

Chief Matthew Reed warned parents to keep their kids away from icicles dangling from homes and buildings.

"They're heavier than you think and can cause serious injuries," he tweeted, sharing photos of long, sharp icicles hanging off the edges of roof.
