I was at Stop and Shop Sunday morning and went out for pizza in the afternoon. The plows first hit my street at 5:30 Saturday morning.

I could not believe how bad the streets were/are in Milford. I work on Broad Street, a pretty busy street and it was terrible. High Street is still a one lane road. I took the train today.

Thanks, glad to see you're well, too! It's just crazy. A big payloader came down our street last night at 10 p.m. and blocked everyone's driveways that we had worked on all day. MFer. But he was just doing his job, so I can't be too mad. And at least now some of the roads are passable. Although I heard the roads from City Hall to Testo's were clean as a whistle by Sunday afternoon. Kinda makes you wonder, don't it? But I heard Milford's roads aren't done yet either, and the kids have no school today or tomorrow, and they won't have their winter break next week. And now the snow days are reaching in to their spring break too. Mother Nature can be a bitch sometimes!

They finally dug a single lane on my street. Now I have to dig out one car and clear a 2-car driveway to park my cars. This should be interesting!

They used a bucket loader here, I think around 5 AM. I have a coal shovel for digging this stuff- much better than a snow shovel.

Bridgeport is hopeless, just hopeless. I was stranded on Myrtle Ave for 2 days, we never heard or saw any evidence of city plowing for 3 days. Thank god houses didn't start burning because the entire south end would have gone up.

In 3 days, not one bucket loader came down a little obscure street known as park avenue.

Why anyone would vote for these scumbags is beyond me.

I never am alone, because I have Tippy and her fish.
