Buffalo Shoveler

03.02.2015 - Mansfield, Ct.  - "We used to play on it as kids. My brother tried to get me to jump off it with an umbrella," says Bruce Potter, 77, shoveling snow in his driveway in front of a billboard featuring a buffalo. The billboard frame, he says, has been next to his residence since before, my dad built the home in 1927. "They tell me I'm too old to be out here but, what the hell, you gotta die somehow." The week's forecast calls for temperatures climbing into the 40's by midweek with a chance of rain on Wednesday. Photograph by Mark Mirko | mmirko@courant.com
