Snowiest January in Connecticut's Recorded History - Guilford, CT By Colin Andrews
Many severe snow storms one after the other - The photos here after the blizzard of the 26/27th January, 2011.
On day four we reached the wood pile, snow up to lower edge of ground floor windows. Synthia at work.
A number of roofs and buildings collapsed under the weight of snow. This unit factory on Rte 80 total collapse
We cleared snow up to four feet deep off our own roofs after noticing the garage sagging.
|As I post this page we are being warned of the worst storm seen in years approaching. It covers a third of the country and is expected to affect 100,000,000 people.

Our vehicles and property buried in several feet of snow - It took nearly a week to gain access to places we had to reach..
|A new experience for the horses and Colin - never seen so much snow.
The snow blower has earned its keep. Tracks to the barn for the people and tracks in the paddock for the horses.
|Lakeside Feed, the store where we buy our animal feed. Open with snow up to window level. An owner nearby hoping the snow will melt of fall before his roof gives in.

The local post office at nearby Stony Creek continue deliveries. Sunset looking out across Long Island Sound (salt water) frozen as far as the eye can see.
