The grocery stores were jammed. Drivers topped off tanks. The coffee shops had lines. Even the CVS parking lot on South Main Street was packed.
Many Milford residents ran around town today, getting last minute preparations done before the blizzard arrives. Snow started falling Friday morning, but as of 1 p.m., no winds yet.
The worst of the storm is expected to begin this afternoon. By then, only emergency workers will be allowed on the roads.
Gov. Deval Patrick has ordered all non-emergency personnel off the roads by 4 p.m.
