    I know that this story is over a week old now, but have any of you seen this story? Is this guy a member here? The reason I bring this up is because I had a new potential customer ask me if he could pay his contract at the and of the season beacause "snowplowers can't be trusted"!!!!! I find it pretty annoying that some idiot out there is giving us a bad rap.

    We have an extreme snow plowing here too, I know the guy, and as much as he and I don't see eye to eye, I doubt it's the same people.

    I think the guy plowing them all out for free is trying to pick up all the contracts.

    This is nothing new. I've been reading at least one or two stories each year like this for at least the ten or twelve years that I've been paying attention.

    With a name like "EXTREME", I would be instantly weary anyway...

    He will regret ever doing a good deed as soon as he damages something and the home owner comes after him. That's what it has come to these days.

    Not much of an excuse, and even if it was, the damage is already done. His goose is cooked getting smeared all over the news and internet like that, not that he probably doesn't deserve it. Oh well, leaves plenty of potential customers for the good guys.

    I think I remember the same thing in Rochester by a company called Extreme Snowplowing last year or the year before.

    The article says he had plowed out 6 driveways...Not much of a liability, but not bad publicity for a little work. Cudos I say, AND we don't know what was truly in his heart-hopefully the best of intentions.

    On the news it did say he was the one that had this same scam in Rochester last year. They also said today, he is still doing it under another name! This guy has a sickness.

    Yeah, I couldn't believe that price. not sure of the annual snowfall in Buffalo, but in MN I couldnt do it for less than 500 unless I had a ton of people in 1 neighborhood
