Drivers prepare for tricky commutes

MIDDLETOWN, CT (WFSB) -

Snow was expected to be spotty on Wednesday morning, but it was enough to keep drivers on alert.

For the third time in less than a week, they faced a tricky commute.

This time, however, it was not due to a storm. It'll be the result of snow showers expected to hit quick and hard.

The Department of Transportation said a solid layer of road salt remains on the roads from the previous storms. It said that should help.

It's not just slippery conditions that drivers have had to face.

So-called "ice missiles," or snow and ice that have not been cleared from vehicles, have been just as hazardous.

As a result, state police said they've been cracking down with fines.

For some, though, the days off and school delays are enjoyable.

"I actually lived out in California for four years, I came back for the holidays, for the snow," said Anthony Quiones, "I just love the beauty of the snow. Nothing looks better than that, you know."
