Dozens of roads were closed, train service was affected, and flights were canceled in the aftermath of Winter Storm Elsa.

Channel 3 tracked more than 40 road closures from downed wires and trees on Thursday morning.

Wet, heavy snow blanketed most of the state and weighed down trees and power lines.

"I got some friends who are further north who have a tree across their driveway so it would be nice to go and help them," said Jeremy Taylor in Guilford. "I’m a teacher so I’m not going to work today so I’m going to get a chainsaw and help them out."

The Early Warning Weather Tracker was all over Connecticut, from Guilford where half the town was without power to the hills of Waterbury where kids had the day off from school.

"I’m ready for spring," said David Plisko of Branford.

Parents said they still had a lot to do.

"I had trouble with the snowblower too," said Tony Ciminera of Waterbury. "Normally it will throw it 15 feet and today it was like 8/10 feet."

State police issued a warning to drivers on Thursday morning to clear their vehicles.

At Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks, airport officials reported that the airlines are still catching up with their schedules.

"More than half of our flights were canceled [Wednesday], with the most impact to the afternoon and evening schedules," said Alisa Sisic, manager of marketing, public information officer, Bradley Airport.

Approximately 30 percent of morning departures canceled.

"However, [Thursday] afternoon’s schedule is on track with only a small number of cancellations and delays," Sisic said. "Passengers are advised to contact their airline regarding their individual flight itineraries and any potential rebooking options before heading to the airport."
