• Snow Leading To Closings & Cancellations

    Mother Nature is not letting go of winter easily today. She is hanging on to winter like a stubborn lion, not a gentle lamb.

    According to the National Weather Service (New York, NY Office), snow is expected to arrive in Newtown “mainly after 1 pm,” and will continue well into the overnight hours. Accumulation of up to 5 inches is possible.
