Early Snowfall in CT and Halloween Cancelled

I did this video yesterday. Halloween had been cancelled in our town and neighboring towns. Some people disregarded the advice and went trick or treating anyway.

9 deaths have been reported due to the early nor’easter. Connecticut still has 736,000 homes without power. Some areas may be without power for up to a week or more.

Connecticut is the third most tree populous state in the US. CT was not naturally forested, and the trees that were planted here are now nearing the end of their life span. So, just a lethal combination of a previous tropical storm to weaken limbs, an early snowfall to cause massive destruction, and older trees. The state has now been issued extra emergency funding to deal with the aftermath of the early snowfall.
