It was great that I got home a bit early when school let out a few minutes before the bell so I could dig out the end of my driveway from the entire block of snow the plow left at my driveway. I've lived here 9 years and worked here for 23. Deerfield used to be the best at snow removal....this season is pathetic, frustrating and ridiculous.

Do the snowplowers go home at 5pm during storms? Why is there snow on the roads in the morning? This should all have been taken care of last night.

Happily I received a very nice call from Dan Busscher at the Village looking into the issue on my block. That is what I have come to expect from our Village. Thank you, Dan!
