CLINTON, CT (WFSB) -

The Department of Transportation had its entire fleet out to assist with Thursday morning's snow storm.

Spokesperson Kevin Nursick told Channel 3 that all of the DOT's 620+ trucks were out.

He called the day "pretty routine" for them, just that the timing of the storm for the morning commute is what affected everyone.

As soon as the snow arrived, the Channel 3 Early Warning Weather Tracker scoped out the driving conditions.

Between Killingworth and Clinton, it found about an inch of snow coating the pavement around 4:30 a.m.

By the snow began moving out in the 8 a.m. hour, viewers in a number of towns reported seeing up to 3 inches.

It also affected drive times across the state.

Hartford to New Haven was 80 min., Waterbury to Hartford was 123 min. and New Haven to the George Washington Bridge was 190 min.

The clipper system that worked its way across the state was expected to bring several quick inches of snow for parts of the state before it wrapped up later in the morning.

Drivers were urged to be cautious when heading out onto the roads.
