From Joene’s Garden

Devil’s Hopyard State Park, in East Haddam, Connecticut, was a hot topic a year ago.

A fire that burned about 150 acres of the park kept local and state firefighters busy for quite a few days and even held the attention of news organizations for more than 24 hours.

A week after the embers and risk for rekindles died, my husband and I hiked along the orange trail to the vista to observe the fire’s aftermath.

The contrasts were striking. It was easy to see where the fire was the hottest – along upward slopes – and where it simply burned the leaf litter.

In a statement issued this afternoon (Feb. 10), Gov. Dannel P. Malloy asks all nonessential State employees to stay home on Monday (Feb. 11) as the cleanup effort after Storm Charlotte continues.

However, evening and midnight shift employees should report to work as normal on Monday, Gov. Malloy said.

“Getting streets clear and making them safer for everyone is a priority, so I am asking nonessential state employees to stay home tomorrow … I understand that everyone wants to get back to normal as quickly as possible. Crews are working around the clock to accomplish that goal, but the last thing we need at this point is a typical morning rush hour commute. Traffic build-up will only delay the effort to clear our roads,” Gov. Malloy said.

Gov. Malloy also announced today that his request for a presidential emergency declaration in the wake of Friday’s historic winter storm has been approved.

GOV MALLOY official head shot 2011

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has asked President Obama to declare an emergency in Connecticut in the wake of the blizzard that hit the Northeast Feb. 8 and 9, 2013.

By Brenda Sullivan | HTNP News Editor

Gov. Malloy has submitted a request that President Obama declare an emergency in the state of Connecticut in the wake of the blizzard that hit this state Feb. 8 and 9.

“As we continue with the recovery from this historic winter storm, I am asking the federal government to provide us assistance with this process,” said Gov. Malloy. “If granted, this declaration would provide much needed help to our state.”

An emergency declaration allows for direct federal assistance, including possible snow removal equipment and personnel, power generation, and commodities but does not provide federal disaster funding.

However, since most, if not all, counties in Connecticut are digging out from record or near record snow fall, a preliminary damage assessment will be conducted to determine which counties may be eligible for disaster funding.
