New Canaan saw the end of the winter storm known as "Euclid" last night, which dumped snow from California to Texas to Connecticut in the past week.

According to weather.com, 4.6 inches of snow fell over the course of the storm on Wednesday and Thursday.

Driving conditions after nightfall were slippery and dangerous, though the New Canaan Police Department reported no accidents or other snow-related incidents.

Thursday will continue to be cloudy, with winds between 15 and 25 mph and temperatures in the mid- to upper 30s, according to weather.com.

Euclid reportedly left a foot of snow in Arkansas on Christmas and up to 6 feet in California's Sierra Nevada mountain chain.

The storm is named after the fourth-century BCE mathematician who is known as the "Father of Geometry," and whose book "Elements," comprised the foundation of teaching geometry for more than 2,000 years.
