Crews Work Through Night in Conn. to Restore Power



    (NECN: Josh Brogadir) - In the icy aftermath of the storm, crews in central Connecticut have been working throughout the night to restore power to thousands of customers.

    We saw the temperature dropping the further west we drove in Massachusetts and on into Connecticut.

    From 39 degrees in Newton, Massachusetts down to 29 in Rocky Hill, Connecticut which explains all this ice.

    Ice seems to be coating everything in central Connecticut, as a snow and rain storm elsewhere was an ice storm here, which formed a glistening shell on the trees that looks like glass.

    Power lines and poles are covered in Cromwell.

    This driveway is a solid sheet of ice and trees are hanging onto the power lines connected to John Moran's house.

    In nearby Middletown, iciles clung to traffic lights on the campus of Wesleyan University, where we kept hearing ice covered branches fall to the ground.

    Power is out to thousands of homes, and Connecticut Light and Power crews are cutting back branches, also trying to get ice off the lines.
