    Cambridge, Brookline and Arlington have had that for a while now. Newton banned gas blowers during the summer months.

    The “Brookline 911” bit on 98.5 radio is one of he best routines I’ve ever heard.

    Our neighborhood runs the gamut, from DILIGAF to Karen. The neighbors contractors blew leaves on our property. Waited until they left and blew them back. So then the neighbor lady called them back and bitched them out.

    College parent groups are FAR more entertaining. On the one hand you have parents complaining that not every dining hall serves chicken nuggets. OTOH you have parents from India asking what clothes their kid needs for “cold” weather, cold being 1° C, or about 50°. Then we tell them about the freezing rain, Bwahaha.

    One of the simple pleasures in my life is watching the new foreign college kids break out the Canada Goose coats in October. They have no idea what's coming

    we're just a little more spread out so leaf blowing, snow blowing usually isn't a problem, except for me as a surveyor, did a downtown survey in the winter, a few years back, property owned from all 4 sides aimed their snowblowers right to where the corner was, I had a 12ft deep pile, different degrees of compaction and frozenness, as I dug.

    pushing snow into the road is our biggest issue, if it is an issue at all, most people clean up.

    When I was in college at Paul Smith's, we had a student from Guam that had never seen snow before, he had a VW beetle, and thought is was going to be like driving on the beach, needless to say, he rolled it into a ditch, before he got a ¼mile from campus

    I just don't think we need laws to protect people from their own stupidity, or inconsiderate activity

    I made the choice to live where I live, and with it, come the perils

    They start with leaf blowers. Then it's Christmas decorations. Then it's loud motorcycles. Then it's off road riding. Then it's racing. Then it's racetracks. Then personal watercraft. Then it's too much horsepower. Are they allowing Trick Or Treating this year?
