A Nottoway High School senior who spends snow days clearing snow and ice from neighborhood driveways and sidewalks saw something out of his mother’s car window that compelled him to tell her to stop the car. Teresa Adams and her son Tommy were driving home from the DMV when they drove past an older man who was trying to shovel snow from his driveway. The man was using a walker to get around.
“Tommy said ‘Mamma stop the car,’” Teresa Adams recalled. “I got scared and asked ‘what’s wrong?’”
He said, “there’s an older man with a walker shoveling snow — I’ll help him out,” she added.
Tommy approached the man and asked him for the snow shovel.
“He looked surprised,” Teresa said. “I was so proud, I started to cry.” Teresa snapped a photo of her son’s good deed.
