Cute Sculpture, Miserable Storm

Shelton’s Paul Hahn turned the Blizzard of 2013 into a marketing opportunity for The Chocolate Pizza Company, the business he and his wife, Wendy, own on Coram Avenue.

The family lives at nearby 106 Wooster St.

After the blizzard hit, the family couldn’t open their chocolate shop because of the heavy snow. Hahn decided to turn — you guessed it — lemons into lemonade by sculpting a large “Nemo” atop a giant mound of snow dumped outside his house.

It took about five hours to create and Hahn used food coloring for the surprisingly well-crafted snow sculpture.

Hahn then affixed a banner for The Chocolate Pizza Company under Nemo.

The sculpture is at the intersection of Route 108 and Wooster. The business — which was closed Friday through Monday thanks to that damn storm named after the fish — is at 435 Coram Ave.

He’s hoping people stop by and commemorate the Blizzard of 2013 by taking a photo with the giant fish from the beloved Disney movie.

Hahn said he fully expects the city’s Department of Public Works to be removing Nemo soon, so get over there quick!

“From my perspective, kudos to the city for working so hard,” Hahn said.

FYI, the Weather Channel named the New England storm that hit the Valley Feb. 8 and 9 “Nemo” in a sort of ridicules play for ratings and attention from Twitter.

Chocolate Pizza opened in Shelton in October 2012. The phone number is 203-924-2821.
