Let it snow

Sunday, December 26, 2010
Time: 1:06 PM

AH! Let the snow begin!

Unless you been living in a cave your entire life, you should know that cars should NOT be parked on the roads tonight. The city is under a level 1 emergency so try and really limit your driving today.

Snow estimates are anywhere from 12 to 15 inches so take the weather seriously and allow the snow plowers to do their job without having to deal with your car on the road.

I'll venture around the city and shoot some video for everyone later...

UPDATE: Traveling on the streets
is officially banned.
Mayor Mark Boughton declared a Level 3 snow emergency late Sunday afternoon, banning travel on city streets and opening the Patriot Garage to vehicle owners who have no place to park.

As of 7:30 p.m. Sunday, only emergency personnel, emergency vehicles and four-wheel drive vehicles will be allowed to operate in the city.

The mayor said Danbury police will be ticketing other motorists, as well as those who fail to get their cars off the streets so plows can do their jobs.

The snow emergency will remain in effect until 7 a.m. Monday, Boughton said.

Take it from someone who went to the store earlier today (and I own an all wheel drive car), the roads are BAD. Do yourself a favor and stay inside...

UPDATE 10:30: Just ventured outside and the wind is really kicking up the snow all over the place...and there is a possibility of a two feet dumping in some areas of the state when this is all over.
Blizzard warnings are in effect and currently I’m forecasting 12″-18″ for most of Connecticut with slightly lower amounts (10″-15″) in southeastern Connecticut. Someone could see 20″ especially in Litchfield County.

The surface low, 850mb low, and 700mb low are tracking perfectly for a major snowstorm in Connecticut. Ideal. Mesoscale banding and strong mid level frontogenesis is going to produce a band of crushing snow this evening. It’s going to be exceptionally impressive for a period of time.

2 feet is possible somewhere but I’m not sure where yet.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
