Dover is the capital and third-largest city in Delaware. It is located on the St. Jones River in the Delaware River coastal plain. Dover is one of the fast-growing areas in the state of Delaware, due in large part to the relatively low cost of living. Apart from the state and county governments, Dover’s significant employers include Dover Air Force Base. 

Two weekends a year, NASCAR races are held at Dover International Speedway, attracting about 65,000 spectators. Firefly Music Festival has been held in The Woodlands of Dover International Speedway every summer since 2012.

Winter lasts about 3 months, from December to March and snowfall is expected from November to March.   

Home Heating Oil in Dover, DE

Home heating oil is the safest, most efficient means to heat you home. Fuel oil is a very stable, combustible, non-explosive product, which addresses some of the safety concerns that surround other fuels.

Winters in Connecticut

Connecticut sits where the New England climate zone ends… and the Middle Atlantic climate zone begins. There are essentially two main seasons in the Tri-State area (NY/NJ/CT): Summer (warm to hot from April to late October)…and Winter (cool to cold from November through mid-March).

According to the National Weather Service, the date of the first freeze in Windsor Locks (in far northern Connecticut) is October 12th…while the date of the first freeze at the Bridgeport/Stratford Airport (along the Connecticut coast) is November 5th. By late November all areas of Connecticut are getting cold, and average highs are from 50 to 55 F and overnight lows are in the 30’s. Often a dusting of snow will fall in Northwestern Connecticut Hills of Litchfield in mid or late November. On average, it’s very rare for any snow to fall before December 1st in southern and coastal Connecticut.

The months of December, January, February, and about half of March are the typical ‘true’ winter months in Connecticut. Hartford and northern Connecticut receive on average twice as much snow (an average of 45 inches)….as the New Haven, Stamford, and New London areas (averaging 25 inches). Most snow storms in Connecticut bring accumulations from around 5 inches to 8 inches, but once every 5 to 10 years a heavy snowstorm or blizzard might drop 12 to 18 inches of snow on the state. Daytime high temperatures in the winter months average from 37 to 42 F in southern Connecticut and from 33 to 38 F in northern Connecticut. Average winter nights are much colder (16 F) in the north and northwestern parts of Connecticut compared to those down in the coastal areas in southeast Connecticut where average winter lows are 25 F. Often, rain will follow a snowstorm and all the snow will melt even in northern Connecticut.

In December 1945, a whopping 45.3 inches of snow fell in Connecticut which made it the snowiest month ever on record, that is until January 2011, when 59.8 inches fell and beat the previous record by a mile. The record for the snowiest season was set in 1995-1996 with 115 inches.

During these winter storms, there are frequent power outages. Customers relying on electric heat are often without power for days. Which is why many of them choose Hop Energy’s local branches in Connecticut to provide their heating oil, propane, generators and emergency repairs. The large coverage area and size of the HOP Energy family ensures fast response times and local service, which makes them the leading provider of heating oil in the area.
