NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) -- Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and for people in the business of delivering flowers and treats, making those deliveries on snowy streets is going to be tricky.
Roses are red, snow is white and there is still lots of it, making Valentine's deliveries difficult.
"Monday, Tuesday the delivery was really brutal," said John Loricco, Blossom Shop owner. "We had 50, 60, 80 deliveries going out and it takes an hour, two hours to get a couple done. It was really hard."
The Blossom Shop in New Haven says the city's recent effort to tow cars and plow made bouquet drop-offs easier today. Still, some streets are worse than others so they call ahead.
"Is your street plowed? Is your walkway plowed to your home, could we get there? And it makes things a lot easier," said Loricco.
If your sending fruit and chocolate, stores like Edible Arrangements are also trudging through snow streets to get to your valentine.
"If they can't go down one street, they go another but they're definitely getting there," said Katherine Elicier, Edible Arrangements New Haven manager.
The store was closed all weekend after the blizzard dumped about 3 feet of snow in the city but it didn't stop them from dipping strawberries in chocolate and making fruit baskets ahead of the holiday.
"We thought we were going to be behind on that, but no, we had it," said Elicier.
New Haven businesses are determined not to break any hearts this Valentine's Day but with all the snow, they ask customers to be patient. Those deliveries may not get there exactly when you want them to.
"They're not guaranteeing the time because of the snow, but definitely, they're getting in to the house," said Elicier.
"We hope tomorrow we can get caught up and get back on track," said Loricco.
And though they're in the Valentine's business, this year they're not thinking of cupid but of Mother Nature.
"We really don't want any snow tonight," said Loricco.
