Thanks Guy's, Doin our best.
Here are the current snow depths as of today....and this stuff is layered and hard packed.
CT has alot of old homes 100 years plus., thus the issues we are facing.

It's beautiful stuff, but there comes a time when enough is enough! I think the whole country's just about had enough ! We didn't have it as bad here, but everything was pretty much shut down for 2 days & Indianapolis has been shut down for almost 4 days now. People playing hockey in parking lots... I'm sure those parents are ready for school to start up again! At this rate the kids 'll be in school til the 4th of July (jk) hahaha !

Come on Mama Nature - bring on the Sun!

Just shoveled 3 feet of snow off three roofs today,
My pocket may be rich, but my poor back.
