While snowy days are beautiful, snow itself can be dangerous if we don’t do anything about it.
If the roads get icy, accidents might happen and people could get hurt, which is why some states require people to remove snow on their property. Still, in areas that receive a lot of snow, shoveling them every day can be very tiring. In fact, I bet people sometimes wish that something magical would happen and get rid of all the snow in front of their home.
In Centennial, Colorado, a group of teenagers did exactly this. One morning, showed up quietly to a neighborhood nearby their home. They looked pretty strange – each of them holding a shovel.
Then, before any of the neighbors woke up, these teens started to shovel snow.
As you can see in the video below, driveways and sidewalks for the entire neighborhood were soon snow-free.
They did not want any credit or award for doing such selfless act – the only that they left behind were notes in front of the doors, which said “You got served”.
One of the teens, named Nick Mirabella, said that they wanted to finish shoveling before anyone came outside. “We just felt it was a really good idea to serve the whole neighborhood,” said Nick.
And when they were finished with shoveling, this amazing group of teens apparently went on sledding to reward themselves!
When people woke up and saw the note in front of their doors, they were at loss for words.
By the end of the morning, Nick and his friends had shoveled 53 properties!
These six wonderful teenagers definitely surprised all the adults in the area.
“My daughter came and woke us up and said, ‘look outside,'” said one of the residents named Darcy Peterson in an interview with KUSA-TV.
“I mean, I can’t believe it. I cannot believe it.”
