People in New London county had big decisions to make with the April snow storm.

Whether to shovel the snow or let it melt.

Towns also had to decide whether or not to delay classes for the morning.

Blue skies were starting to break over Main Street in Old Saybrook in the late morning.

The roads were wet, but the plows have made paths for people to drive.

The highways in southeast Connecticut were clear, the only delays were when the plows were lined up across 95 or 395 to clear the snow.

Many people even began their gardening this weekend and started to put their snow blowers away.

Eugene Michael Evangelisti has a rule of thumb, never put away all the snow equipment because in April, there could still be significant snowfall. 

"Our family has been in business since '45. You don't put anything away. being farmers, you always have one thing ready, you never know when to expect it," said Evangelisti. 

Public works crews and contractors made quick work of Monday's snow. 

Mother Nature jumped in as temperatures rose up to around 40 degrees. The snow that fell earlier in the morning, became a slushy mess later in the day.
