Patch's Poll: Was Your Street Plowed Within a Reasonable Time Frame?

Some residents waited days to see a plow, but given the historic amounts of snow, was that reasonable?


Up to 40 inches of snow fell on Connecticut between Friday and Saturday, with most of the state receiving at least two feet of the white stuff.

The historic storm set records and, in most places, deposited more snow than the Blizzard of 1978, according to wxedge.com.

Snow plow drivers, who started working Friday morning, still hadn't reached many side roads by Saturday night, leaving some residents feeling trapped and frustrated.

What was your experience with getting plowed out? Do you think the towns did the best they could to manage an extraordinary weather event, or could they have done more?

Airline and Cow Hill were in much better shape than I-95 on Saturday. Great job!

I think the town crews are doing an admirable job. As Craig said, if you have never plowed before, it is a tough job. And no one plowing now has ever plowed through a storm of this magnitude. The ice layer alone stopped all but the largest machines. Then, where to put it? People get too up tight, Relax, you live in New England. - it will get done.

We are literally the last house, on River Road, in Clinton. I was surprised at how quickly the road was plowed. Thought we would be close to last. Thank you Clinton!

We live on a cul-de-sac and are usually one of the last street to be plowed. However, we learned a valuable lesson from our Asian neighbors who own a restaurant in town. As usual they got up to go to their business and instead of waiting for the plow to clea the way (or complain about it) they snow plowed a path out of the street themselves - eventually some of the neighbors joined in. It was a lesson learned that instead of sitting inside and complaining about being snowed in; just get out and start digging!

Are you racist? Why would you comment on the race of your neighbors? What does that have to do with anything?
