You no longer live in the middle of nowhere, better check your HOA for noise restrictions. Sadly, many HOAs prohibit loud snow blowers and even leaf blowers, or at least the ones gas powered which tend to be louder. Hopefully, living in WY, there are no such restrictions.In my new neighborhood there apparently are two neighbors that each try to beat the other at plowing the snow off sidewalks and driveways of nearby neighbors. That's what my wife has told me. The day after I arrived here we got some snow and I saw a guy on the tiniest tractor I've ever seen with a little plow that looked like a toy to me. I started laughing at the site of it. That's one of the two neighbors helping out a lot of others. He's also the guy that winterized our sprinkler system and will teach me how. He wouldn't accept payment.
I brought a monster snowblower with me and may sneakily get snow cleared from the neighborhood while they're at work. They'll have to up their game now that I'm in town. Once neighbors learn I can solve their tech problems that'll probably become my good neighbor niche.
