Winter Storm Closings and Delays, Another Snowfall Possible Monday

Feather News

Due to yesterday´s winter storm, the Mohegan Tribal offices will open at 10 a.m. The Mashantucket Pequot Tribal offices and their museum will open 2 hours late today.

The opening of some schools will also be delayed, such as Groton 90 minutes, Griswold 2 hours, Ledyard 90 minutes, Montville 2 hours, Norwich schools and NFA 90 minutes, and Stonington 90 minutes.

A foot-plus of snow fell on the Poconos Mountains, which is a three-year record snowfall for that area. The city of Wilkes-Barre, the location of the Mohegan´s slot parlor, got about 9 inches. Today´s Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board meeting has been re-scheduled for Thursday February 17 at 1 p.m.

By early Thursday, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington had announced new annual snow records, and more than a foot of snow lay across parts of New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island, a New York Times article said today. Federal government offices in Washington D.C. are closed today for the fourth consecutive day, due in part to last weekend´s snow storm.

There is talk of another winter storm, possibly as early as Monday. Or possibly later.
