A taste of winter this week, but some still wondering where the snow is

Wednesday evening could be messy. A storm is expected to begin as snow before turning to rain.

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — It's no secret winter in Connecticut has been noticeably missing something this year.

"It’s been very mild, you know it’s been very mild, not a lot of snow not a lot going on," said Zac Greenhill of Redding.

There’s been plenty of rain but snow has been a little bit harder to come by.

"No snow! I like that 'cause I don’t have to shovel but on the other hand, it would be beautiful to have a little bit of snow wouldn’t it?" said Julia of West Hartford.

Well, that depends on who you ask. Some are doing just fine without it.

"I’m not a winter person so I love when it snows and it melts away fast," said Dezrene Thompson of Meriden.

While others have been waiting on a good snowstorm all season.

"It is sad to see that there hasn’t been a lot of snow cause I like winter sports. But they make snow there so I guess it doesn’t really matter," said Kayleigh Roy of West Hartford. "That’s why I live here. For the fun snow stuff so the fact that there hasn’t been any does kind of stink a little bit."

Almost to the end of January this week finally brought at least a little bit of winter weather.

Rain turned to snow on Monday and Wednesday the opposite is expected. Snow will turn to rain and it could make for a messy evening commute.

"I put sand down for ice. We get more ice than anything which is too bad," Julia said.

Though it’s been mild so far, it is Connecticut and there are still plenty of winters left.

"We’re getting to February so we’re getting the countdown til winter is done so I’m like oh the snow is coming now? So we’ll see, we’ll see how that goes," Roy said.

"I’m kind of just waiting for it to come but hoping that it doesn’t," Thompson said.

While this week’s storms aren’t huge events by any means it’s enough to remind us it’s not quite spring yet.

"You’ll catch us right here doing snow angels tomorrow. Let’s go," Greenhill said.
