State Employees Sent Home As Snow Starts Falling

With a snow storm expected to bring between 4 and 8 inches of snow, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy is opening up the Emergency Operations Center and calling for the staggered early dismissal of nonessential state employees starting at 3 p.m.

“I am asking residents to take it slow as they head out for the afternoon commute and to avoid travel during the height of the storm tonight,” Malloy said in a statement. “If you do not need to be on the road tonight, please stay home as road conditions and visibility will be deteriorating rapidly. I’ve also asked all executive branch agencies to enact their early dismissal plans so that we are not bogged down during the usual evening rush, right when the snow is forecasted to pick up. Private sector companies may want to consider similar plans.”

The current forecast is calling for heavy snow overnight tonight into Wednesday morning with overnight wind chills ranging from -10 F to -15 F. In addition to a winter storm warning for the entire state, the National Weather Service has issued wind chill advisories for Tolland, Windham, and Litchfield Counties until 12 p.m. Wednesday.

Downtown Hartford is not a fun time during rush hour in the snow.  Early dismissal is not a political ploy.
