    Imagine my GREAT nextdoor neighbor will be doing the same thing on the first chilly weekend! We generally don't get a LOT of snow in my part of NJ, but glad he has a snowblower. Live on small cul de sac (7 houses) and he usually just runs the whole length of the sidewalk in front of EVERYBODY's house. Says it's no real work (self-propelled, just steer it) and already has it fired up. He always refuses any $ for clearing a path on sidewalk and often driveway... HUGE favor... so I make sure there's a case of "beverages" when the job has been done.

    I am not ready for summer to be over either. We've had to put the top up on the way to school 3 days last week.
    By the time we got to school it was warm enough to put it down again, but still. I miss my 80 degree mornings! icon_sad.gif

    I wish we had a snow blower. It's not usually too much snow here in the valley, but we are required to have the walks and driveways shoveled by 8am every morning. That's a huge hassle and a blower would be awesome!

    I am SO ready for summer to be over!! Had way too many what I call "wasted" days that were just TOO hot/humid to do much more than retrieve newspaper from driveway and then right back into the AC.

    My township has an ordinance that you have to clear (at least a path) sidewalks within 24 hours of when snow stops. After one fairly big snowfall, crazy/good neighbor cleard everybody's sidewalk with snow blower. Since I'm on a circle, we get plowed LAST... main roads first, side roads second, then circles. Plow came thru and hadda push snow somewhere... my front is widest, so that's where the mountain ended up. BUT plow also pushed a section easily 20' long right into the cleared area... trying to shovel snow that has already been shoveled is next to impossible. So I get a "warning" from township!?! Went out and took a bunch of pictures that showed DRY sidewalk, 20+' of snow, and then more DRY sidewalk. Was FULLY ready to pull out the OLD card if needed... but didn't!

    I've noticed in the last 10 years that HOA members seem to get more and more nit-picky over little things, turning some things into personal vendettas.
    We've had similar issues in our neighborhood.
    One family had a cherub fountain in the front yard, and was told to "remove the pornographic statue".
    We were the first house to build in this neighborhood, and the minimum yard requirements (besides lawn) were a 2-inch caliper tree and one shrub.
    We planted the appropriately sized tree, but 4 years later, as the other houses were being built and moved into, we got a nastygram in the mailbox from the HOA. They were taking issue with the fact that our tree was a 4-inch caliper.
    For the record, I can't grow anything green, so it figures that the ONE thing I've been able to keep alive, and GROW, for 4 years, is what they complained about! rotfl.gif

    I sent a nice little response apologizing for the fact that we planted our tree 3 years before anyone else, and that I was not aware we weren't allowed to let it grow until it had friends.

    I'm guessing someone just had trunk envy, cause we never heard another word about it. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I say now that I'd love it, but I know it would get old fast. We moved from Montana when I was in kindergarten. My best memories are of all the feet of snow we had, and my dad building us a table and chair set out of snow in the front yard.
    My mom HATED the 3 feet of snow. icon_lol.gif

    Snow is not an issue here; summer weather all year round, but we'll be heading back home for vacation in November and what a shock that'll be to the system.
