The power is back on in Roxbury
Power was restored Monday about 7 p.m. to 150 Roxbury homes that had lost power about 5:40 p.m.
First Selectman Barbara Henry said Eversource Energy had estimated it would be two hours before service would be restored and it turned out to be less.
Cause of outage unknown at this time.
"It's been a tough day for our road crew," Henry said in late afternoon, "but the guys have done a good job. We expect to be wrapping up in the next couple of hours."
In New Milford, Public Works director Mike Zarba said his highway crews were "starting to push back the snow and getting things cleared."
"We expected some drifting overnight and will be out first thing in the morning to clear roads," Zarba said about 5:30 p.m. "We expect to be out of here about 8 p.m."
Cars had been kept off the roadways most of the day, he said.
In Sherman, First Selectman Clay Cope said his road crew had done an outstanding job with difficult circumstances.
"People have been parking on the roads," Cope said. "Our resident trooper has had to get into car sand move them out of the way of the plows."
"Our crew has been at it since 2 a.m. They plow and salt and sand and the snow's kept falling," he added. "They've had a hard time of it but kept our roads clear."
