Brailey was spotted on Center Street, preparing to cross Howe Avenue toward Coram Avenue.

The Derby resident had earlier skied across the Derby-Shelton Bridge to reach Shelton’s central business district.

During her adventure, she was able to see a lot of people out clearing snow from their cars or shoveling sidewalks and driveways.
