Emergency Management officials had a succinct message for residents who are waking up to mounds of snow on Saturday.
Don't be in a hurry to get anywhere.
"We're asking that people stay off the roads and allow the plow crews to do what they do best - clear the roads," Emergency Management Director Michael Purcaro said. "We want everyone safe."
At its height, the storm was dumping snow at a clip of about 6 inches per hour with wind making visibility practically non-existent. Plows were all over the place, but the roads were quickly covered again just minutes after a pass.
No roads were closed, but Vernon police spokesman Lt. William Meier said some in town were just about impassable.
Meier said it should be well into the morning and it could be into the afternoon hours before all roads are clear in town.
"People should just stay home - and off the roads - until they can be cleared," Meier said.
