"I actually had to go out a secondary door and then chisel my way back into the house by breaking the ice."

He added:

"This is like our sixth storm in a matter of a few months, and it’s kind of wearing on everybody,"

He also said that there's a woman living next door to him whose home is completely blocked. The ice almost reaches her roof.
