It’s been so cold in New Canaan since consecutive snowstorms walloped the town that the crew clearing the area outside the former Post Office building is using a jackhammer to crack the mountain of frozen snow outside (see video).

Motorists pulling up to the light where Park Street hits Cherry and Pine watched from the comfort of warm SUVs as these guys jack-hammered away at the pile and shoveled the frozen pieces away.

The space long occupied by the Post Office—itself relocated at least for now at 90 Main St. (which is causing its own difficulties with traffic and parking)—will see a Mrs. Green’s Natural Market go in. It isn’t clear just when it will open. Mrs. Green’s could not immediately be reached for comment. Mrs. Green’s website says “Coming Soon” and according to the building permit issued by the town, the work being done by Duxbury, Mass.-based Coastal Contractors is estimated to cost $1 million.

The National Weather Service says temps will reach a still-frigid 24 degrees today and fall down to 16 overnight.
