HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -
We received many calls into the Channel 3 newsroom Sunday from people all around the state who's streets still have not been plowed after a historic blizzard dumped several feet of snow on Connecticut.
Some viewers have even sent photos to our newsroom of neighbors helping neighbors to clear their own streets with shovels, plows and snow blowers.
"It is New England, but it shouldn't be Minnesota," said Neil Kiernan, of Torrington, about the conditions following Blizzard Charlotte.
Last night Gov. Dannel Malloy announced that it could be as long as 10 days before highways could be fully restored.
Malloy said municipal employees were "working hard" to clear snow and make the roads passable.
However, residents told Eyewitness News that they are frustrated about the job that crews are doing.
"I feel very stressed. They should be plowing these streets, people have to get out and get food," said Diane DeJesus, of Meriden.
The state is expected to release 65 front loaders to cities and towns around state to help with their cleanup efforts.
Malloy asked anyone traveling on the roads Sunday night and Monday morning to use caution because freezing rain is expected to fall Sunday night. The freezing rain will make the snow heavier.
"Monday's commute will not be easy," he said at news conference in Hartford on Sunday night.
Mayor Pedro Segarra in Hartford also said that cold temperatures hindered efforts to clear their city's streets. Segarra said that city workers were focusing on side streets over the next two days and receiving help from the fire department with the cleanup efforts.
Segarra, along Bridgeport Mayor Bill Finch, New Haven Mayor John DeStefano and Middletown Mayor Daniel T. Drew, are urging residents to stay off the roads in their cities unless it is an emergency.
The roads in many cities and towns are passable, which means that they are only good enough for emergency vehicles.
The town of North Branford imposed a travel ban in their town on all roadways until 6 p.m. Sunday. They said the public works department needs the cooperation of all so they can clear the roads as soon as possible.
Mayors and town officials told residents to not push or throw snow from their cars or properties into the street because it prolongs cleanup efforts.
Residents should also clear away snow from their fire hydrants in case of a fire.
In South Windsor, Residents of Berry Place were clearing pathways from their doorways to the street.
"We have not even attempted to even do the front steps of the walkway there's got to be four feet of snow drifted in there," said Davis Jelly, of South Windsor.
The snow has been so much that even the plows are having a hard time to keep up.
"I think they're doing the best they can," said Cynthia Kaplan, of South Windsor. "It's unfortunate they can't get everywhere as quickly as they like."
In New Britain, Mayor Tim O'Brien wrote on his blog that city crews are working around the clock and they are hoping to have streets cleared by snowplows sometime on Sunday.
Malloy also advised residents to help their neighbors with the cleanup efforts and to check on the elderly.
Back in South Windsor, Plows were overloaded and many of drivers told Eyewitness News that they have never seen this much snow.
"They're doing the best they can," Kaplan said. "We had a plow come down our street yesterday and it got stuck and it took at least an hour's worth of tries to maneuver that truck out of where is was."
