Darien Drivers Frozen After Ice Storm

Father and son Dougal and Rob Munro are just two Darien residents who were left stranded by the ice storm Wednesday.

"I would be in the city right now, instead I had to work from home," Dougal said as he scraped ice off of his car in the Center Street parking lot.

"We left our car here last night because the roads were too slick to drive," said Rob, who was also encouraged to work from home Wednesday. "We took a cab home and we're just now able to come and get our car."

The storm knocked out power across town and led Superintendent Stephen Falcone to cancel school yet again. As of 4:30 p.m. power has been restored to all but eight Darien residents, according to Connecticut Light and Power . The Darien High School boy's hockey game was also postponed.

The Munros have not let themselves be discouraged by all the recent storms. "We live in Connecticut, so we have to expect it," Dougal said. "I will say this, it will be nice when spring comes."

Luckily the groundhog did not see his shadow this morning, so it looks like we'll be getting an early spring.
