Greenwich to the rescue

Greenwich escaped the brunt of the blizzard, which means it’s using its power for good — helping out the eastern part of the state.

Greenwich Emergency Management Director Dan Warzoha says the town’s emergency medical personnel are helping out in Bridgeport, where ambulances are stuck in huge drifts.

“It’s really bad up there,” Warzoha said.

Aside from waiting for the governor to lift the ban on state roads, Greenwich is in good shape — at least for getting through a storm that delivered 15 inches of snow by midnight. (Official totals, usually provided by the town Highway Department, which is rather busy, weren’t available this morning.)

“Route 1 isn’t in good shape,” Warzoha said. “If you’re nonessential travel, you’re going to get pulled over.”

Most major roads in town have been plowed, but secondary roads are still messy.
