“I am not sure why we have an ice rink in our backyard, but our hockey-loving daughter is living her best life today,” Randean Klindt said.
Andrew Kraycsir said his daughter asked what the temperature was. After he told her it was -7 degrees Fahrenheit, she said she wanted to go outside.
“These are my neighbors in the 700 block of Rockpile plowing everyone out with their 4-wheelers today,” Harmony Jo Smithhart said. ” The one with a snowblower is my son and he is plowing out the alley so I can get out too. Thanks to them all for being so awesome!”
“Chris Bonter cleared a lot of the 300 block of Rockpile for friends & neighbors, such an angel!!!”
“Our wonderful neighbor, Tom Ford, who brought his tractor to our cul-de-sac and plowed 7 driveways of neighbors’ houses as well as the street. He has done this before for our neighborhood,” Beth Scott said. “Great guy!”
“Our neighbor was nice enough to shovel our sidewalk for us on Beaver Drive!” Brandy Anderson said. “On Beaver Drive we have a wonderful group of awesome neighbors that look out for each other.”
“My husband, Neal Smith, plows five driveways including ours every time it snows,” Amanda Smith said. “He’s on his 7 off from the mine and has plowed snow the last three days. He’s an awesome neighbor to all he helps. He’s a good man. He loves helping others, it’s who he is. It’s also a bit unbelievable when he will clear snow for neighbors and himself after a long work week or after night shifts. He works hard and helps others whether he’s on the clock or off.”
