Remember two Sundays ago, when about a half-foot of snow came down? (Much like this past Sunday!)
That night, shortly after 10 o’clock, one of our subcontractors needed “to call it a night” without getting to one of our clients, a Catholic grade school.
Within 20 minutes, my dad had begun an impromptu, grueling four-hour shift that included shoveling nine sets of stairs totaling 120 steps as I worked on another snow removal job. A short time later, students and staff—who had been sleeping as we got the job done—safely got their week started.
When snow comes, we can’t just let it pile up. It’s an emergency service that people have entrusted us to deal with professionally—and that includes meeting certain deadlines.
Convenience isn’t what has enabled us, since 1980, to build a snow removal and management practice across more than 400 square miles of Chicagoland. In fact, the more stressful the scenario, the greater the opportunity to come through for our clients.
So, when Monday afternoon rolled around, you can imagine how we felt when the school’s maintenance director let us know what he thought of our effort: “It looks great!”
