The big snowstorm that hit us this week might have caused a bit of havoc on the roadways, but it also inspired plenty of kindness from Amherst residents and city workers.
As the snow fell today, the Amherst Facebook Group filled up with thank-you messages and offers from members to help snowed-in neighbors. In fact, there were more positive, thankful, helpful posts in the group today then we’ve seen in its four-year history.
Below are just a few of the many wonderful posts that members left in the group today. It really illustrates what a great, friendly community he have here in Amherst, and how our neighbors look out for each other. Please share this post with your friends to show them how proud you are of Amherst!
I didn’t get a good look at the guy through the snow on his window, but I gotta share this…
I was just out shoveling my driveway and had got to the end where the plows leave all the deep heavy snow. I’m knee deep in this stuff, chipping away at it , when all of the sudden this guy in a flat bed pick up truck pulls up.
He drops his plow and in three sweeps the snow is gone. He never even rolls his window down to get a thank you, just drives off.
Friggin love my town!
Kudos to the city plow driver that angled his plow away from my drive while I was cleaning it. This was between 5:30 and 6:00 tonight on Crosse Rd. Thank You, it was a lot less snow for me to clear.

I grew up in Amherst and live in Rocky River now. I was speaking to my landlord this morning who told me that he was recently in Amherst for a wake and got lost. He told me that the people of Amherst were very friendly, helpful, and were even willing to go out of their way to help him find the highway and the church. He said that the people in Amherst were nicer than those in my area! Keep doing what you’re doing Amherst.
I just wanted to Publicly thank Joe Miller! He is one of the best neighbors ever. I think he has been outside for the past two three hours with his snow blower just going house to house blowing everyone’s driveway in the neighborhood. I know he has done it a couple times already, never stops to ask for a thank you or anything recognition, he just does it. My dad is pretty active for his age, but it makes me feel a lot better for when I am away at college knowing my dad will be taken care of when it snows out because of the people in my neighborhood, especially Joe! So thanks Joe, you are a really great guy, and if you ever need anything do not hesitate to ask.
I am going to be playing on the four wheeler again to day if someone needs their driveway done near valley drive
It’s so nice to see people pulling together to shovel, snowblow, plow and offer to get groceries. (Hoping more snow days are on the way) Stay warm and safe.
A big THANK YOU to the city plow driver who purposely shifted the blade on his plow as NOT to fill our driveway apron with snow! My hubby was out shoveling our driveway and noticed him changing the angle on the blade and s l o w l y plowing by. Thank you!
Good call Amherst schools on being proactive and not reactive by closes the schools with plenty of notice…. not so nice out there today… Kudos Mr. Sayers…
