How much snow did Shelton get vs. other towns?

It appears 5 to 6 inches of snow fell in Shelton, based on measurements taken Wednesday morning off lower Bridgeport Avenue, near the Trumbull line.

Amounts may have been slightly higher in some other parts of Shelton, with higher elevations. (A resident of Shelton's Huntington neighborhood said she received 7 inches of snow from the storm.)

This storm appears to have left the most snow along the Interstate 84 corridor, in all parts of the state. Most towns near I-84 seems to have picked up 8 to 10 inches, whether close to the New York state border (western Connecticut), in the greater Hartford region, or near the Massachusetts border (eastern Connecticut).

Picking up the least were the south-central part of the state (New Haven area) and southeastern part of the state (New London area).
