Go with the Snow
Area residents make the best of it

As the song says, "Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..." and that it did. Despite the wind whipping, the snow accumulation heading over 10 inches, and what is trending as #Blizzard2016, southern Connecticut residents grabbed their hats, gloves, gear and good attitude and plunged into the outdoors.
From sledding to cross county skiing to snowboarding to making snow angels, people (and pets) were enjoying the first big snow fall of the season.
The snow did take a toll on some as AAA responded to more than 500 calls for emergency service and Metro North service shut down at 4pm. Many heeded Gov. Dannel P. Malloy's warning and stayed off the roads and hunkered down inside.
There is a winter storm warning in place for all of Connecticut, and a blizzard warning is in place until 7 a.m. Sunday for southern Fairfield, southern New Haven, southern Middlesex and southern New London counties.
However, there will always be those who can't resist fresh, falling snow flakes and will make the most of whatever the weather has to offer.
