New London saw around 5 inches of snow Saturday as many towns and cities in the eastern portion of the state saw a significant amount of snowfall.

 

Along with the snowfall came winter essentials like shovels and ice scrapers. Jeremiah Miller braved the frigid temps and snow-covered roads to get a haircut at Bravado Barber Shop in downtown New London.

 

“I came in to get a haircut. My wife said it needed to go,” he said.

 

Adrian Vega, a barber at Bravado, said the number of customers dwindled as the snow came down.

 

“It’s been slow,” said Vega. “It picks up at times, but people still want their hair cut.”

 

Vega and many others Fox CT spoke with are tired of the snow.

 

“It’s too much. I was just in Puerto Rico two weeks ago, and I wish I stayed,” said Vega. “It is what it is.”

 

New London, like many areas across the state, have seen a much heavier snowfall than normal this year.

 

Mayor Daryl Finizio said all plow routes were covered, but the salt supply will likely run out with this storm. He is standing behind Gov. Dannel Malloy, who is working to get more salt for municipalities across the state.

 

For many people in New London the latest winter storm has them wishing it were spring.

 

“I’m pretty much over it,” said Nui Sendee. “I can’t wait for summer. “
