Have you ever, even at 3 a.m., seen I-95 without cars? I took these photos in Stamford and Darien while heading to work (in newspaper life, duty calls!) just after the worst of Hurricane Irene passed Sunday morning. They show our main interstate artery in a state of desolation seldom witnessed.
There’s probably more than a few of us who wish it could be like this all the time.
Using his power as Connecticut’s chief executive, Governor Malloy banned all tractor trailers from driving in the state as the storm raged through. The only drivers that could be seen for miles were a few brave souls (or stupid, depending on how you look at it) and a caravan of electricity crews headed to make emergency repairs.
In another bonus, the tropical storm made driving home at midnight a breeze, with night road work no where to be found.
