The three shoreline towns of Essex, Deep River and Chester received the full brunt of the snow storm on January 21 and 22. However, recovery was quick, and in each of the three towns the main streets were completely cleared, and the secondary roads plowed and safe to drive on, by mid-morning at the latest.

In fact, in the down towns at noon, it was even hard to tell that that there had been a major snow storm the night before. However, along the shore in Essex, and on the open fields of Deep River and Chester, the major storm had clearly left its mark.
