The past three weeks have seen one snowstorm after another barrel up the east coast and dump more snow onto the area.

Plowing snow is often a thankless job. There is rarely praise, but there are few things that raise a person’s ire more than snow-covered streets days after a snowstorm has passed.

With us now deep into February and after three weeks of snowstorms, we want to know: How would you rate Chelmsford's snow removal this winter?

How has the town done this winter? What have been your experiences? Where are the areas in town that may still need work?

Let us know in the comments section below. Give your praise, voice your concern and let the town know what you think about snow plowing this winter.

Willis Drive, 6th Ave, etc around the lake off of Groton Rd could use better plowing - going down the center of the road and not pushing it to either side has made these roads extremely narrow. Very disappointed to see Town plows doing this - makes me wonder how my tax dollars are being spent. Hope emergency vehicles will be able to get down these roads if necessary

I live in North Chelmsford. Our street gets plowed, but....We have no sidewalks so the street is never plowed as wide as it should be. The banks at the end of the streets are so big, pulling into traffic can be an adventure. Cottage Row Street is horrible. Folks who leave trailings in the street - either from snow blowing or bad plowing - should be fined. (And that money put back into the snow removal budget.)

I ventured out for the first time yesterday after Tuesday's storm and I have to agree that some roads that should be two-way have become barely passable for just one car. It is frustrating and the corners are so piled high it is dangerous to even attempt to pull out; I cannot understand why they don't raise their plows to push back on the height of these mounds. I fully understand that there is an abundance of snow this year, however .... shouldn't safety be foremost when executing a good plow?

My bad...Cottage Row St. is ok. Gay St. is a mess from Princeton to Middlesex.
