Besides leaving 10 inches of snow on the ground by Friday evening, Connecticut’s first winter storm of 2014 also should test the state’s new effort to control flying ice on its highways.
According to a new law that took effect last week, truck drivers could be fined up to $1,250 if accumulated ice dislodges and causes damage to a person or to another vehicle.

A snow storm that has yet to fully reach Newtown as of late Thursday afternoon has town officials planning on locations for residents who may need to seek shelter should their homes lose electricity, and therefore heat.
The snow storm will keep Newtown under a Winter Weather Warning until at least 1 pm Friday. Forecasters are also predicting temperatures at or below zero, and wind chills bringing additional concerns. Connecticut has not seen these types of temperatures for more than 15 years.
