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 Woburn’s snow removal this winter?

We asked a similar question at the beginning of January after a major storm and actually heard mostly positive comments. How has the city done this winter? What have been your experiences?

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

I give them a D for my neighborhood.

I don't know if it is the collaborative efforts between Winchester and Woburn but the plow drivers in my neighborhood are top notch. A+

Overall good job. Only complaint is at end of Wright Street. This is a bus stop. The snow is piled high on corner and there is no place for children to wait. It is worse when there are 3 or more cars at light. No place for kids to walk to get on bus but in the street on driver side since sidewalk is covered.

My neighborhood is hit or miss when there's snow. Sometimes it's done well and kept up, other times our street isn't hit until long after the snow has stopped. (Millyan Rd) One thing that is slightly irritating is that my house is a located at the corner of the street. I placed reflectors on the edge my grass and surrounding my hedges. Not only did the plow driver plow snow crushing my hedges and tearing a 3'X8' section of my grass, but he plowed over 4 reflectors! And what's with my neighborhood being plowed with a pay loader? I am pretty sure a normal truck with a plow would do the trick. Why the massive payloader? I feel like I'm in an episode of "Gold Rush" sometimes.

Fantastic. A+ I work in Burlington and as soon as you cross the line into Burlington you see the difference. I'm thankful for the hard work and the well treated roads here in Woburn. Thank you!

Overall, an excellent job. My street was a bit behind the curve, but it isn't a through street. It was passable but not clear after the last storm. My only complaint is that the piles were too high for safety at nearly all corners. Zero visibility in many cases.

They do a fine job on the local roads but they need a new plan to clear the Walnut st Parking lot. All of the local businesses in Woburn Center rely on that lot and it is always a mess.

Over all a fine job would like to see snow cleared from downtown area

On the main roads the city does an excellent job but that is because the city workers are clearing these roads. The side streets incclouding Stephanie circle off of Salem street which is always plowed( if that's what they call it) is always terrible, after every storm I have to snow blow 6 feet to get to the curb and also clear out the mess they leave at the bottom of the street where it meets Salem street. This is always a problem during snow storms, maybe these contractors should be watched more closely.

All streets should be plowed to the curb if there are contractors that won't do that hire ones that will!
