Buried in Shelton

When the final flake has fallen and all snowfall measurements tallied, the Naugatuck Valley and other locales around central Connecticut may turn out to be one of the hardest-hit areas in the state.

From Hamden to points all up and down the Route 8 corridor, some staggering snowfall totals are coming in, many well over 2 feet.

Shelton is a prime example. Tarasa Ribas emailed us a couple of photos of what we can only guess are cars buried in the downtown area of Beard Street. The photo on the right appears to show one car buried. Perhaps four are somewhere in the second photo.

With the drifts, it’s difficult to get guess at a snow depth, but Ribas tells us that the fences in both photos are 4.5 feet high.

Pretty impressive. And there’s at least a few more hours of snow to come.
