Crews that spent more than a week cleaning up the devastation after Hurricane Sandy had to switch gears Wednesday night and start plowing and sanding the streets after a nor'easter dumped about 6 inches of snow and ice on the region.

The snow snarled traffic Wednesday night and delayed schools and town offices Thursday morning. Town Hall offices did not open until 10:30 a.m., the libraries at 11 a.m., and the town's schools -- which had been open only a single day since Oct. 29 -- had a two-hour delay.

But unlike Sandy, which knocked out power to most of town for days, the nor'easter had interrupted electric service to fewer than 100 local customers on Thursday morning, according to United Illuminating.
