I heard someone call the seemingly endless flow of storms through the area a "snowverdose" the other day. It seemed fitting.
And Mother Nature has tipped her Wiltonian snow globe upside down again, with wintry weather expected to continue through Saturday morning. The National Weather Service put out a warning saying there will be high winds accompanying the expected 7-11 inches of precipitation on the ground, meaning most of the town will be essentially shut down for the day.
So fire up those gas stoves and pop in a movie, or don your mittens and boots and go revel in what can only be described as perfect snowball snow.
But do your best to stay off the roads. The Wilton Police Department is urging everyone not to drive unless absolutely necessary, and at present have shut down a portion of Route 7 in the north part of town to pull a car out of the ravine.
Here are the closures so far:
- The Wilton Library is closed for the day.
- Wilton Public Schools closed early this morning.
- The Wilton YMCA is open (hooray!) but all morning and afternoon classes are canceled.
- Thursday's SWRPA informational meeting on Route 7 Land Use has been moved to Monday at 6:30 p.m. in the Wilton High School cafeteria.
- The WHS Boys Ice Hockey Quarterfinals have been moved from tonight to tomorrow at 8 p.m. at the Darien Ice Rink.
- Trackside Teen Center is closed to teens for the day.
We'll be sure to add more closures and news as it becomes available.
