Today's weather, a recipe for slushy, slippery roads.

A few inches of snow accumulated on streets this afternoon.The constant dusting, led to constant sidewalk shoveling and road clearing.  

"I like it from home with hot chocolate in my jammies.  I don't like walking in it because I almost slipped," said Sarah Nielsen, an area resident who was taking the train.  

The slick conditions, a cause for caution.  Accidents were reported on I-95 in Greenwich and again later in Stamford.  

"Look at 95.  It's just crazy," said Nielsen.

Travelers say with possibilities of accidents galore on 95, on days like today, they would much rather take the train.

"Well you're safer at home, but you're definitely safer on the train," said Nielsen.

"Recently back in my town there was an accident and it was fatal.  So I suggest trains are better to take at this time" said Chris Vitoritt, an out of state resident taking the train.

"One time I did drive, and didn't take the train.  It took me three hours to get from here to Fairfield," said Nielsen.  

The snow is forecasted to move out of Southwestern Connecticut sometime tonight.  

Drivers, allow extra time to get home during the evening commute, and stay safe.
