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.

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!
