Looking for a Way to Say "Thanks" After the Storm?

Who deserves your thanks? The road crews, the stranger who plowed the end of your driveway, your neighbor, or anyone else who helped you out during this historic snow storm? Thank them right here on Patch for everyone to see.


It's been a snow storm of epic proportions that everyone who lived in this part of Connecticut will remember for a lifetime.

"Where were you when the Blizzard of 2013 hit Clinton?" will be asked over and over.

Patch is a great forum to use for community conversations. This time, let's all say a big "thanks" to any person or group who helped us out during this storm. It's easier than sending a thank you note!

The good Samaritan stories are making their way around the kitchen tables: a member of the Clinton Police Department who drove to pickup an infirm person's prescription at a local pharmacy; a group of neighbors who all chipped in and got their road cleared using a team of their own snow-blowers; neighbors helping elderly neighbors clear their driveways; a plate of chocolate chip cookies magically appearing for the crew at the Department of Public Works.

Your story is out there.

Add your comments to the article to say a "big thanks!"

Thank you Scott Striby for plowing the end of my driveway when you saw me trying to break through 3" of ice and snow, and Justin and Michael Bloom for helping me when the plows widened the road yesterday. The updates were wonderful, It let us all feel connected ,Thanks Willi and Town crew and local contractors.

Thank you to the police officer who pushed my car out of the snow on Hammonasett connector Friday evening on my way home from work. It was scary being stuck in the dark with no one but the giant plows going by.

As I sat warming myself by the wood stove, I saw Willie Fritz driving in and out of our neighborhood many times Friday night when the storm was really getting bad. One time, he had to remove a tree that had fallen across the road so he could get out. Wasn't long after that the fire dept came by responding to a neighbor's call. If Willie hadn't removed that tree, they'd have really been delayed. Thank you to Willie for being so "hands-on" and to those hardy souls from the fire dept, police dept and DPW who braved the elements all night long so the rest of us could stay warm and dry.

What a week it's been... I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to everyone for the countless hours you put in during and after the storm. The DPW, FD, PD, contractors, private plow drivers, Willy and the kind-hearted people of Clinton, who after shoveling their own property went on to help their neighbors out. I had to go out on Monday to the train station in Old Saybrook, our roads were by far in much better shape than surrounding towns.
