Bridgton begins to dig out from almost two feet of snow
BRIDGTON (WGME) -- With parts of Maine waking up to nearly two feet snow Wednesday morning, the cleanup process is still well underway.
The main roads in Bridgton are clear, but the side roads and sidewalks are still being worked on.
Bridgton residents are getting their day started with a lot of snow, which is why shoveling, snow blowing and getting rid of it all is important, especially when it comes to opening businesses on-time.
"We started at 7:15. I have no idea what time it is now, but I'm thinking we've got at least another hour, hour and a half,” Jason Frizzell, Bridgton residents, said.
"I originally grew up in Portland and I have never seen a storm this bad,” Victoria White, Bridgton residents, said.
Some say the nearly two feet of snow is causing problems for removal.
"Yeah this is my snowy deck all right. It's a lot more work, it's an odd snow it's very fine and dense so it's a little heavier to shovel,” Frizzell said.
While snow removal crews work to open businesses, others are working to get into their homes.
"I was afraid to stay here last night so I went to a friend’s hour and stayed,” White said.
White is now seeing her home for the first time since the blizzard.
"Well I'm waiting for the plow man and the driveway is 300 feet long,” White said.
