Bigelow Tea Digs Out From The Blizzard Of 2013
Tuesday, 12 February 2013 by admin
The Blizzard of 2013 will long be remembered for dumping historic amounts of snow in the Northeast. Here in Fairfield, Connecticut, we were pounded with snow all day Friday and into the morning hours on Saturday. At times, we were hit with 4 inches of snow per hour! When the snow cleared, Bigelow Tea was dealing with about 36 inches of snow in our parking lots, on our roofs and in the roads.
As Saturday led into Sunday and then early Monday morning, our snow plow removal vendor (R & M Custom Contractor) was hard at work clearing our roofs and our parking lots. As Monday morning rolled around, most major highways were clear and safe, but many streets remained unplowed. In true team fashion, Bigelow Tea employees carpooled and we were able to get enough people safely into the building. After a slow start, we were soon running machines and getting back to the business of making and supplying tea bags to all of our loyal customers!
