Snowstorm feuding with the neighbors.......
Original Message   Feb 3, 2014 7:46 pm
Heh. All this talk about single stage , impeller velocity, yibber yabber. Had my 1st snowstorm feud with my mothers neighbor that lives across the street , 1/4 of the block off from her house. I swung by her place, and cleaned out her sidewalk, her driveway, and even did 1 house of the adjacent neighbor and 2 other houses on the other side of the adjacent neighbors sidewalks. All ~older~ neighbors that I more or less know on a friendly basis. Now, I'm not the type to throw the snow into the street, which everyone seems to do.... The streets need to be clean, especially as dusk settles and this stuff hardens up. The plows just come and veer it to whatever the direction of the plow is directed. So I make a nice mound, past the driveway, and OUTSIDE of the outer edge of the car that was parked in front of her house. The back of the car was not shoveled out, nor this mound. All I simply was doing was finessing the snow so it's clean on the street leading into the driveway. The sides of the car in question facing the street facing was shoveled out. I just added to the *snow* that was there already... So the gentleman comes running up to me and confronts me - directing me to throw the snow into the street. I just continued on, adding to the mound of the snow... Any of ya'll have snow shovel enforcers :-/

It's true you can't pick your neighbors. I cleared the driveway of my nextdoor neighbor (call him Joe - not his real name) a few times after I heard he had some back issues - and he has no snowblower. Neither Joe nor his wife even gave me a thankyou so I stopped doing it. Later on in another overnight/morning storm I was running my Ariens at 6am to clear 12" snow cove to get to work and Joe came out of his house and cursed me for making all the noise with the snowblower so early on. A Monday morning. Finally, in yet another storm which had 30mph gusts some of the snow i was throwing was getting blown across my yard into his yard (we have narrow lots and our driveways are only 20 feet apart) so he came over m to complain. I reminded him of ll the times I cleared his driveway and he said with tightened face muscles and clenched teeth, " I don't give a xxxk". On the other hand, we enjoy sharing a glass of wine with our neighbors across the street and the neighbor on the opposite side of my house from Joe do all sorts of things to help each other out.

Once upon a time, my brother lived in the last house of a dead end, his front neighbor was blowing the snow on the street, by then so that the city workers would push it at the end of the street, but before the big truck arrives to do the job. it could take 2 days. The next morning my bro went out for work and stuck in the snow, the battle began :) police came and ask the guy not to throw the snow on the street, that what he didn't do, you know what, 20 minutes after the cop came he throw all the snow from his garden, my brother was furious, what a mess, he grap the guy (my bro 6.3 Ft. 225 pounds)by the chest and lift the guy and throw the guy in to the snow, hte guy call 911 and accusing my bro for attacking him wow....the cop gave a 300$ fine to the guy and told my bros that he did OK :)
