GRANBY, CT (WFSB) - The second round of snow from Winter Storm Abel deposited several inches in northern Connecticut.

The roads were difficult to travel on in the Granby and Enfield areas Tuesday morning.

A crew in Channel 3's Early Warning Weather Tracker saw tractor trailers having to pull into parking lots until the bands of heavy snow ended.

It finally let up during the 6 a.m. hour.

One of the hardest hit areas was North Granby.

"It was light fluffy snow. We got a lot last night, but it's easy to move," said Sam Lovell, as he was cleaning off his car in Granby Tuesday morning.

Folks in the area also enjoyed another snow day.

"We thought we were done last night. We got all the shoveling done and get to bed, thinking we would send our kids off to school today and here we are," said Sarah Merrill, of Granby.

Over in Enfield, police said they had six crashes during Winter Storm Abel, and 19 calls for assistance.

Residents began to dig out on Tuesday morning.

“I prepared the day before the storm yesterdays, and got my snowblower working and made sure the shovels were there, and ready to go," said Ken Daigneau, of Enfield, who had 16 inches of snow in his yard.
