East Haddam is Number One in Snowfall for Middlesex County

Numbers from the Nation Weather Service show East Haddam beating out Old Saybrook by 5.5 inches!

 

The tallies are in and East Haddam leads the snowfall count in Middlesex County with a documented 35.5 inches, according to the National Weather Service.

I counted 36+ in my yard so perhaps these numbers aren't completely accurate!

Here are the numbers posted under Middlesex County on the National Weather Service's web page:

...MIDDLESEX COUNTY...

EAST HADDAM 35.5

OLD SAYBROOK 30.0

CLINTON 27.5

HADDAM 27.0

HIGGANUM 24.0

CROMWELL 23.0

MIDDLETOWN 12.0 

 

*Since Killingworth doesn't have a reported number with the NWS, how many inches were in your back yard?

about 27" on route 148, near Kroupa's Pond.

Owing to drifting I could report any number of depths in my yard. How exactly does the NWS determine what is an accurate measurement?

30" on Wickham Rd. in the area we could get to. Middletown is way off though. Both of my sisters live there and they had around 28".

35" on Saddlebrook Drive bordering Cockaponsett Forest and the Chester line. Drifts to my chest. Horses are getting bored.

We measured 34" (not a sniw drift) in our yard on Rt 154 in Higganum.

Interesting link, Nancy...thanks! I was wondering how accurate calculations were made, myself.

Kudos to East Haddam town workers, seldom let us down. Roads cleared - even though we're top of the snow accumulation league! Thanks, guys!

Looking for the answer. One, is RT-81 open north of the RT- 80 rotary? Two, is there power in the area north of the town hall? Thanks.

That 12" reading for Middletown is wrong! I live in the Westfield section and we had 32".

37" on Landing Hill Road by the CT River

Hi Richard...I just spoke to Cathy Iino a few minutes ago. (At 3:20 p.m.) She informed me that the roadways are open, but are still not in the safest condition, and is asking that residents continue to stay off the roads unless absolutely necessary. Some of the lanes are not open wide enough yet and need to be reserved for emergency access only. All power in Killingworth should be on!

32 inches on Burr Hill Rd.
