Snow in July?

Snow and climate change–leave the unpredictability and hassle to the professionals:

The weather in Vermont is somewhat fickle and most of us that grew up here live solidly by the mantra “if you don’t like the weather wait five minutes it will change.”  Currently we are in a rainy pattern and June is making a valiant effort to bring our precipitation levels back into a normal range for the year (we were ~3″ under average coming into June).  In fact according to Wunderground for Essex, VT we are 2″ ahead of the June average and it is only June 16th.  Imagine if all this rain was snow–almost 6″ of rain would be a minimum of 36″ of snow.

Climate change has added a certain feast or famine to our weather patterns.  The averages are staying pretty constant but the events are becoming more severe.  May this year was unseasonably warm (12 days above 80 degrees vs 1 day above 80 degrees in June) and almost drought stricken.  June has been cool and wet–the average of the two is ideal, but the reality has been a bit extreme.

Winters are becoming this way as well–more extreme temperatures, wildly fluctuating snow events, later start of winter, later end end of winter.  While the climate is out of our control we can provide some certainty to your schedule with our residential snow blowing service.  In winter 2014-2015 we received over 85″ of snow and we cleared 19 events over 2″ with a minimum of 19 clears of a driveway to a maximum of 57 clears of the driveway.  We take the unpredictability out of the snow fall and keep your life moving like the snow never happened.  You don’t have to worry that we will forget your house because we are so busy clearing off commercial sites because residential snow removal isn’t our afterthought it’s our only thought.

Even though it’s only June 16th we are ramping up for the 2015-2016.  Contract renewals are out and we have several early payment incentives.  On July 18th we will be at the Essex Junction block party with one of our rocking snowblowing tractors.  We will be meeting a greeting with all of our neighbors and friends.  We would encourage you and your family to join us and have a great night meeting neighbors.  During the evening we will be having a drawing to pick from those who have already paid–one lucky pre-payer will receive free driveway snow removal up to $360 of their total price.  Prices will then go up 10% after October 15th.

We look forward to working with you again this season keeping your driveway passable at a reasonable rate.  If you aren’t currently a S & D Snowblowing client we would invite you to hang up your shovel and leave your winter woes behind.  Call Hannah (802) 922-7699 or email
