There is the potential for a significant winter storm to impact the area tonight through tomorrow. New Fairfield First Selectman Pat Del Monaco says the volume of snow might not be the only issue to contend with, but also winds up to 45 mph possible. She called on residents to prepare for the possibility of a prolonged power outage and cold temperatures. Due to the pandemic, New Fairfield will not be able to provide extensive sheltering facilities, showers or meals. To ensure that roads get plowed, parked cars should be moved off of the roads before the storm starts in order to accommodate the plows. A sand salt mixture is available to New Fairfield residents at no charge at the DOC, though residents must bring their own bucket and shovel. The DOC will be open from 8am to 3:45pm.
