About a foot of snow fell across most of Connecticut Wednesday night and Thursday, the first significant snowfall of the season.

Aside from a few scattered power outages and mostly minor traffic accidents, there were few reports of trouble, and some people escaped their COVID confines to enjoy the change in scenery.

The CT Mirror’s Yehyun Kim photographed these scenes in Hartford and West Hartford.

Yehyun joined CT Mirror in June 2020 as a photojournalist and a Report For America Corps Member. Her role at CT Mirror is to tell visual stories about the impact of public policy on individuals and communities in Connecticut. Prior to joining CT Mirror, Yehyun photographed community news in Victoria, Texas and was a photo and video intern at USA TODAY and at Acadia National Park in Maine. She holds a master’s degree in journalism from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Yehyun was born and raised in South Korea.
