    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!

    I live here in CT also this is nuts, I can just fit one car down my street and my neighbors garage collapsed today from snow. Buildings are going down like crazy. The company I work for had 165 guys working on Superbowl Sunday removing snow off different schools in Ct.

    I can not take one more call explaining ice damning and how the windows we installed 5 years ago and never leaked are now some how are fault that water is pouring in and there house has 14" ice dams on their gutters.

    Whew that felt good!

    Thanks for listening :)

    That's pretty bad. Just imagine those people in Texas & all the southern states that are getting this like never before - they must feel like they are in the twighlight zone or something!
