Everett Newell shovels the snow off a lower roof on his building in downtown Collinsville on the morning of Dec. 17, 2020.

A winter storm arrived in Connecticut overnight and accumulated fast. Snow continued to pile up into the morning of Dec. 17, and residents woke to a blanket of fine, fresh snow. Some towns measured up to 15 inches. Whipping winds made for a frigid start to the day, but not everyone stayed indoors. See photos from across the state of municipal workers, businesses and residents cleaning up and digging out, people going about their day, and some braving the elements to enjoy the first nor’easter of the year.
