STAFFORDVILLE, Conn. (WTNH) -- This early March snowstorm was a surprise to no one but there were a few areas of the state that got way more snow than they expected.
In Staffordville residents are still digging out after getting hit with nearly two feet of snow.
"It started out with two, then four. When I got up it was well over a foot," said Andy Furness. "And before you know it, I got close to 20 inches up at the house."
It has been nearly 24 hours for the plow drivers in Staffordville and nearly 24 inches of snow. They won the snow fall total jackpot for Connecticut. That is if you call that winning.
The plow drivers are bone tired from a battle that was harder than the blizzard.
"Very hard to push back, very hard to get your edges back. The 31 inches we got was light, fluffy snow and it was easy to push back. This stuff is wet and heavy and you gotta go slow to try and push it back and it still don't want to go back," said John Mordasky.
Molly loves the snow and her owner Ryan loves the snow but most people in Staffordville have had enough.
"Not the 20 something again," said Rick Flynn.
"This is jackpot. You guys are highest in the state," said News 8's Bob Wilson.
"Twice I think so it's been a good winter so far but it is supposed to warm up so we'll see," said Flynn.
With snow up to the car door, drifting up to the roof. It is a typical heavy, wet, sloppy, unpredictable spring snow and spring isn't even here yet.
"We need summer to come because it has been a pretty rough winter," said another resident.
