Town crews have spent most of today preparing for the winter storm that’s expected to rock the area this weekend.
Throughout the day on Feb. 7, Public Works employees got ready for the upcoming winter event. Snow is expected to hit Cheshire as early as tomorrow morning, and last for at least 24 hours. Some forecasts are calling for upwards of two feet of snow by the time it’s all said and done. Director of Public Works George Noewatne explained that crews were busily preparing for the blizzard.
“The guys know something big is coming,” he stated. “We’ll get through it and react to whatever the weather gives us.”
Workers were fueling up vehicles and topping of salt mix in the plows. Equipment, such as backhoes, have been stationed around town at the firehouses and wastewater treatment plant to help move snow. Staff also spent Thursday checking generators, inspecting heating systems and getting ready for the storm. Noewatne said crews were told to bring their overnight bags, as once the storm hits, they might be on the road in Cheshire for more than 24 without going home.
