Carlos Biskleta is making sure the mail finally arrives at one home on Norwalk's Muffin Lane.
Buried since Sunday's two feet of snow , two mailboxes in front of one duplex on this dead-end Norwalk street were cleared for delivery by Biskleta and a top-of-the-line snow shovel from the Home Depot in Norwalk by lunch time Thursday.
"They haven't been delivering mail they will today," said Biskleta, a construction worker from nearby Ohio Avenue who also does a lot of snow shoveling.
Resident Angela Bagnara had sounded off earlier Thursday on the Daily Norwalk's Facebook page about the piles of snow on her street. She said she had even received an email from Mayor Richard Moccia explaining Norwalk's plowing procedures .
Biskleta was joined on Muffin Lane by friend and Norwalk resident Rolando Zuniga, who said he didn't have a shovel because he was on vacation.
"I'm on vacation until next year," said Zuniga, who installs central HVAC systems in the area. "I didn't expect this much work on vacation."
Both men said they hadn't seen so much snow fall in one storm in Norwalk since the late 1990s. Biskleta, a 12-year-resident of Norwalk, said he hopes there will be more big snowstorms, which will mean more work shoveling work this winter.
"I try to make a little cash for myself," he said. "But this one here is free."
