More than 2 feet of snow, and in some cases 3 feet, fell across the state and residents banded together to dig their neighborhoods out.

Neighbors working together We woke up Sunday morning and sent out a mass text to 7 of those us owning snow blowers to open up our street. We started with 4 and by the time we finished there were 9 of us. We have dubbed ourselves the Flying V. This weekends storm reminded each of us why we love our neighborhood, children playing together and parents coming together to help one another. Craig Simon Scarborough Lane Middletown, CT

no neighborhood help here Just one man with a mission We own our own business and needed to get out of our road. My husband asked neighbors if they would like to ban together with their snow blowers and clear the roads. He was told it was too much or that they would help later. He snow blowed two roads himself. Neighbors sat in their driveways or windows watching him. It took 3 hrs but he got it done. We are very proud of him.

Block Party In our neighborhood in Black Rock, we decided to have a little block party on Sunday. After helping each other shovel our cars out, we decided to have some fun with the snow and the idea of being snowed in. So we turned on some music, and played some games!! "BRL...It's A Lifestyle"
