"I am so blessed to have a snow angel, Tim, on Halifax Drive. Miraculously, he appears with every snow. " — Hagerstown "On Thursday, Jan. 27 at 11 a.m., my husband, who's in his 70s, had to shovel out our long driveway on Route 67, which is Rohrersville Road, to get to work. When he was halfway done, a white Chevy pulled over and a young guy 21 years old got out with a shovel and helped him finish, and even cleaned out around our mailboxes. We didn't get his name, but he was not only a snow angel, he was a blessing to us. His kindness was overwhelming, and we want to God bless him. Thank you. " — Boonsboro "I'd like to thank my snow angel, who is a neighbor.
