Richard Thompson here. I grew up in Windsor in the 1960s and '70s. I remember many a winter storm that had my brother Bob and I shoveling our drive way and walkway. We sometimes helped our dad, Pastor Thompson, keep the sidewalks clear over at Trinity Methodist. Monitoring the affects of this most recent storm in WIndsor brought back many a Winter memory.

I appreciate the difficult efforts on the public works department but what should a resident do if their mailbox and paper tube are in a snowbank somewhere? Is there a procedure in place to have them replaced quickly?

If you had a mailbox removed by a snow plow call the Windsor DPW at 860-285-1856-just keep in mind with the extreme amount of snow they may not be able to replace the mail box in the next couple of days

What do I do if I cannot remove the snow around the hydrant in front of my home? The plows have pretty much covered it, and I can't remove it as it is too heavy for me?

Mr. Lockhart: I would love to discuss the budget with you. However, since I am not a quitter I will keep trying to clean things up myself? Just wanted someone to know that at this time I can't. I'm 5'1" and not as big as the plows that have come by here many times. I just want the town to know that I'm doing the best I can, and trying to be a lawful citizen at the same time. BTW? I give you much credit for speaking to all of us on the website. You seem to be the only person on the board who cares enough to speak your mind. It's just so strange that it's the same people all the time? Where are all of these parents having problems with their children?? This is their time to voice their concerns. AND THANK YOU FOR OFFERING TO CLEAN OUT MY HYDRANT. Unfortunately, I am not near the Wilson Fire House. Thanks again for all you do.
