As we all know, the Lewis Mills Football season is coming to a close. The team will be playing their final game againstCapital Preparatory Magnet School, away at Dillon Stadium. But before the season is over, the team will be putting on their annual Community Bonfire. The event will be held at Foote Road in Burlington Ct, and the whole event will be sponsored by the Burlington Lions Club. The weather should be in the mid to upper 30s, so be sure to bring a light jacket.
Here's what the team said about the event on their official twitter:

 When I woke up this morning, I wasn't sure what to expect as far as road conditions. After I jumped in my car and headed to my usual breakfast spot (which is all back roads from my house, as well as the studio) I was hit with an overwhelming beauty of the snow-covered trees, ice caked cars, and rare quietness, that only seems to happen after a snow storm.

After breakfast, I drove down to the newsroom, inside the Pow Animation Studio, located in the northwest corridor of Connecticut, and the road conditions remained the same. After working on something for a while, I began to wonder what the road conditions were like on the more main roads that su…
