Oxford hit hard by storm

“Nemo has not been kind to Oxford,” First Selectman George Temple said in a robo call sent to residents Saturday afternoon.

The town received one of the highest snowfall totals in the state – 36 inches.

This road in Oxford has more than three feet of snow. It remained unplowed late Saturday afternoon.

Many roads have not been plowed because of deep snow and mechanical breakdowns of trucks. Temple also said one plows became stuck in snow.

Major roadways have been plowed, by most roads remain untouched. In an emergency order, he asked that residents do not drive.

Temple said “all roads will be open by midnight” Saturday.

He said there was some good news: there were no power outages in Oxford.

“And remember, the first day of spring is forty days away.”
