Shoveling Help in Brattleboro?

Questions & AnswersI hope there will be no more snow storms. However, being realistic, there probably will be. I would like to find someone I could hire to shovel my front walk and around my car which is parked across the street from my house. I live on Chestnut Street.

Do you know of anyone I could hire to do this for me? I've done about a third of my walk this morning, but after getting soaked through I've come in for a rest. I need to finish it before noon, so no rest for the weary!

Thanks,
Joann

    In ye olden days, teens wanting to make some quick cash would walk
    around town with shovels, and take on any sidewalk or driveway an
    owner would pay them to clear.

    If there were kids today that needed some extra cash, they could be
    cleaning up... literally and figuratively, right now.

    I've also seen folks with plows drive around in a similar fashion.

    Kids don't want to do things like this anymore. A few years ago, when I had my leg in a cast, I tried to get a neighbor-kid to shovel in front of my door. It was a five minute job. He informed me that he could not do that because he had a friend visiting for the day and they were playing video games.

    Good luck to anyone looking for shoveling help, but don't hold your breath while you are waiting.

    How about some of those teens voluntarily helping out the elderly and disabled who can't shovel their own driveways and walks? After all, they owe something to this community for the millions of dollars we're being taxed on their schools.
