Towns in the central region of the Nutmeg State reported as much as six inches of snow. Lighter snow was reported along the shoreline and CT State Police reported numerous minor crashes on state roads.

With that storm wrapping up and another in the forecast for the end of the week, we were talking about snow Monday (12/12/22) on the I-95 Morning Show. As always seems to happen when we discuss snow, we got into the New Fairfield question. Does New Fairfield, CT get more snow than the other towns in Greater Danbury?

I am the co-host of the Ethan, Lou & Large Dave Show on I-95, and my morning show partner, Ethan Carey has always said that New Fairfield gets more snow. I have called B.S. on this claim, many times. Listen to our Monday talk below.

We had text messages come in to the I-95 Rock Mobile app that supported Ethan's claim, there was no backing for my point of view.

The Real Joe Biden - Putnam Lake - "It doesn’t happen much, but I have to take Ethan’s back on this one. I grew up in the lake right down the street and now I live in new Fairfield. We definitely get way more snow in New Fairfield than we do in Putnam Lake, NY." 

Jay Cadmus - New Fairfield -  It is a slightly higher elevation than Danbury, So it does sometimes get a little more snow. It’s noticeable but negligible. Which is to say Ethan is exaggerating." 

So enough with the blither-blather, I'm going to leave it up to all of you, don't fail me.

If you voted yes, there is still time to go back and change it.

BUT WAIT! There is a scientific answer and we got it from an actual meteorologist. His name is Jack Drake and he joined us Wednesday (12/14/22) to answer our question. Listen below for his answer.
