Tree and Power Line Damage from October Snow Storm, 2011

I went out this afternoon and took some photos of a waterfall close to where I live.  Those came out well and will be in a later post.  In the waterfall area, there was very little damage from the storm, so I decided to head further north and revisit the Audubon Center at Bent of the River in Newtown, Connecticut.  Big mistake.  The further north I drove, the more downed trees and power lines, as well as road closures.  I finally gave up and came home, which required several detours to make it here.

According to the local radio station, there are still over 800,000 homes without power in Connecticut.  This appears worse than Hurricane Irene, which was bad enough.  Plus, now tonight we’re expecting record low temperatures.

Below are some photos from the tree and power line damage along the road.  There were many worse areas than this, but it wasn’t safe because of either traffic or downed lines to photography those.  If anyone is wondering, I stayed in my car for all these shots.
