There was a time when the first sign of snow brought cheers from those of us living in our home; however, fast forward many years later, after the era of sleds and snowmen, and the sight of new snow would send me to my shed to get the shovels ready for a strenuous workout. Groan! Since my house is on a corner lot, there is a significant amount of snow that needs to be removed, and so I would be out there, even on cold, dark nights, starting the laborious process of clearing snow to get a headstart before I would have to be out there again in the morning. Since I discovered BAMs, this encounter with ice, snow and cold is now just a memory. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Once there is one inch on the ground, Brett McCurdy knows he will be sending his men to my house after the snow has stopped. There's no need for me to phone. No need to email. Brett has his list and I can rely on the fact that his men will be on the way. Because my husband and I have been so satisfied with the service provided this past winter, we just renewed our contract for the coming winter. For us, this service is not a luxury but a necessity as well as a safety issue on a number of levels. What a good feeling to know that my neighbors and family members will have clear passage in front of our home! As we have had a new stone walkway installed this past spring, I had a few questions about how the snow removal process might affect the new walkway. With each question, before the night was over, I received an email response. What a good feeling!
