This year when I just couldn’t anymore, I called Fabio Vieira and he came with a crew of 5 and two snowblowers, did a great job. I have no idea if what he charged was a lot or a little, having not much to compare it with. But when two days after one big storm, I had to go to a doctor appointment but saw that the plow had widen the street leaving me with a foot high pile of packed ice that I couldn’t even get my shovel into, I phoned him - I am pretty sure I woke him up - and he came out immediately and got me free. The others, I don’t know personally, but each of the above people has been recommended at some time by someone on this list.

And yes, it is really nice when the walks are clear. I have total sympathy, though, with folks on corners where the plows push all the snow. Let’s all just try to do our best, and know it will never be perfect.
