After a historic blizzard that dropped over thirty inches of snow over the state cities and towns strained to clear the roads
from such a staggering blanket of snow. Ambulances and firetrucks getting stuck to and from calls were a common site as well as citizens pushing them out. There have been a great number of stories of neighbor helping neighbor and I was proud to give the good citizens an audience on our Facebook page, asking for examples and oh we got man of them! The city of Bridgeport announced that they may not be able clear all roads until next Sunday. People then started posting on our Facebook page photos of neighbors clearing their own streets! I have to admit I looked at the fire hydrant three houses down from my house and thought of taking the fire department’s suggestion of digging hydrants out for our safety. But there was about five feet of deep snow, even with my snow blower I’d probably be a medical call before I finished. Clearing an entire street by hand? Amazing! We got many examples.
Inspired, we teamed up with Fire Engine Pizza at 2914 Fairfield Avenue, for a Street Clearing Talent Contest! Send us a video of you and your neighbors clearing the street of snow in a creative way, i.e. a rap, a dance, a parody or just having fun, whatever! Use your imagination! Sent the video or Youtube link to firstname.lastname@example.org along with your contact info. The wining group will get TEN free pizzas from our good friends at Fire Engine Pizza in Black Rock. The gang at the bar will select their winner Friday night! If there are other businesses that would like to contribute prizes contact me at the e-mail above!
