2015 Got Snow Flyer Front

I’m back again today with a post I was hoping not to have to write this year. For the past few years I’ve been on sort of a personal crusade against a company doing business under the name of Got Snow? or Got Snow Services. Got Snow is at least the 3rd name this company has been known by.  In 2008, I was taken by this scam when they were going by the name of The Snowplow … Continue reading

It’ll save you a TON of money at the pump.) I was running a bit late as the wife had to … Continue reading

Snow By The Mailbox

So last week we got about 30 inches of snow in a two day period.  This of course means snowblowing… and lots of it.  I’m a tad bit anal when it comes to keeping my driveway clean so I’m the neighbor that’s out there multiple times per day keeping it clear. I make sure that I’ve got the entire driveway nice and clean so when it’s time for me to venture out I can do … Continue reading
