    Our amazing snow angel

    by TabithaS, 4 days ago
    Our amazing snow angel is amazing. Without a doubt if there is any snow at all I can guarantee that my snow angel will be around no matter what time is it. I notice that he also is a snow angel for 4 or 5 other people. He shovels and de-ices all the walkways(front and back) that he shoves so that everyone is safe ( many of the houses have disabled or people that have a disability). He does an amazing job and I am so proud of him. He works, goes to school and shovel everyone's walkways, in my... Continue reading

    My 8 yr old snow angel❄️❄️

    by Martha wilson , 5 days ago

    I own my own business and I often work late, especially now that we are short staffed and very busy during Covid with no end in sight!

    So far after every snowfall, my 8 yr old neighbour Micah shows up like a snow angel and clears my snow. You would think my driveway would look like an 8 yr old shovelled it, but it doesn’t!!! He puts his whole heart into it and does a masterful job!! Tonight I arrived home and there he is shovelling away and he had even corralled his 3 yr old sister Annika to help!

    Compassionate Snow Angel

    by Botterell, 6 days ago

    The morning after the big dump of snow....the snow angel who lives beside us was out shovelling her double wide driveway. She noticed that Nancy (an elderly widowed senior) living across the street was struggling to get her car out of her double wide snow packed driveway. Without hesitation our snow angel crossed the street, shovel in hand, and cleared Nancy's driveway. Our neighbourhood snow Angel never asked Nancy for thanks and I am sure if Nancy hadn't been outside to witness this act of kindness, would not have known who had done it. This was just one act of...

    So grateful

    by Jmp, 11 days ago
    We are so incredibly grateful for our neighbor, Roy. He not only cleans out our driveway throughout the winter but also 3 or 4 other neighbors driveways as well. We are so appreciative as we have a large driveway and also get a lot of snow from the highway plows. We are so lucky to have such a kind and thoughtful neighbor.

    Wonderful Snow Angel

    19 days ago

    Submitted By: lappanr111

    I would like to nominate my neighbor Erol. Erol is such a wonderful person. My husband had quadruple bypass surgery in December and every snowfall, Erol is here shoveling our driveway no matter the amount of snow. This man has a heart of gold and would help anyone anytime! No job to big or small.

    Neighbor's like Erol and Jan are far and few between.

    We are truly blessed to have neighbor's as Erol and Jan!

    Love my neighbor

    by Truelove, about 1 month ago
    My neighbor is a very kind and helpful person. I cant count how many times they have helped me.

    The winter can be tasking sometimes with my schedule and workload. I can always count on Terry to bring over the snowblower when we get a big dump and help clear away all that heavy snow for me.

    I am very blessed to have such wonderful neighbors as Terry and Sharon!

    snow angel on my street

    by Jean Young, about 1 month ago
    Every time it snows, our neighbour Dan gets his machine out and not only does my driveway he goes along and does about 4 other places. I have seen him stay out for hours, covered in snow with a big smile on his face and will not take any money from any of us. He does this out of the kindness of his heart and knowing I have health issues does my place right after his. I have seen him come back out after the the snow plows come and cover our driveways again. This man deserves to win....

    Local Snow Angel

    about 2 months ago

    Brian clears several driveways. Many in this area are seniors and find clearing snow very difficult. He goes out in all kinds of weather to make sure they don't have to.
