Original article:

As Oxford braces for what could be one of the worst snow storms in recent memory, Oxford Patch is there to help bring you the information necessary to keep you and your loved ones safe.

This will serve as the hub of information about the storm - how many inches are out there, where the power is out, what parts of the borough to avoid - throughout the storm. We will update it regularly. And, since this is a community forum, we encourage readers to share with us information in our comments field and photos/videos in our media upload section.

Meanwhile, Naugatuck officials are preparing for the storm:

  • Oxford schools are closed today, Friday, in preparation for the storm.
  • The Department of Public Works employees are ready for the snow. 
  • The National Weather Service says there is no chance we won't see a snow storm on Friday, and that it could be a big one.

As always, stay safe.

Can anyone from city office give an update on street cleaning status? Our street has been buried with 3 feet of snow and there was not a sight of the truck whole day. It's understandable that storm of such proportions would take time to plow, but an update would be appreciated. Are we stuck for several days?

Well seeing public works is plowing private driveways instead of the roads and the schools they don't have time to do what they should be doing. I was really mad to see my neighbor getting his driveway plowed by a public works plow.

They finally widened Route 67 today. They were nice enough to use a backhoe and dump it away from the road and not into driveways. Then, after they were gone, the TOWN came along with the plow and plowed us in again!!!!! What are they doing plowing state roads? Everything was fine and it looked like we would be able to finally get to our mailbox. Well forget that!!! Thanks guys! Don't suppose you'd come back with shovels and clean up the mess you made, would ya'?

Linda, give em a call!! They did my neighbors!! They did the same thing here... But not at my neighbors.. They sent a second truck to shovel out his mailbox! I'm so glad I've got pictures of this guy plowing the neighbors!!!

My hubby was out doing our private customers driveway with a piece of heavy equipment that we rented to get the job done... so I would be very careful what your assuming of the town!!!

I did call Bonnie. Of course, no reply. Now my husband has injured his back trying to clear the mess they made and he may not be able to work! Can you believe that?
