    The neighbor that lives across from me has their snow plowed by a contracted service. They push large amounts of snow over the road and into my front yard. They usually leave some in the road too that ends up being pushed right in front of my driveway. I don't always get out to run the snowblower and it's not very effective anyway in the slush that gets pushed from the road. I have 4WD but anytime someone is stopping over I have to shovel because of some a-hole :censor: . I put a few markers where they push the snow so they would stop doing it but now they just leave it on the side of the street (on my side) which ends up leaving more snow in my driveway. Am I just being a bitch? I really would rather not look out my front window and see a huge pile of snow. There is LOTS of room on both sides of my neighbors drive for the driver to push the snow.

    I have only lived here a year. This neighbor is the only one that hasn't stopped over to greet me and never waves, what do I do now, a nice note in the mailbox? I was thinking about driving some metal poles down into the ground leaving about a foot or two. Maybe the threat of messing up his plow might be a deterrent!

    He definitely knows about it you can't miss it! It's a mound of snow about 6 feet high and 10 feet wide.

    That is actually illegal in the towns around here, might want to check with the cops.

    I'd go talk with the snow removal co. Next time they are out, tell them it's not acceptable to put the snow in your yard. Plus, obviously they are just lazy if they are leaving snow in the road. I used to own a snow plow business and I hate when plowers are just too lazy to clean up after themselves. Anyway, I'd tell the plow driver to knock it off. They should accomodate your wishes.

    I agree with him.
    On a footnote go get some really fresh dog schitt put in a brown bag(dosed with lotsa lighter fluid) , deliver it to his front door at night.

    Light it, ring his doorbell, run like hell.............

    guy is an ass.

    Or you can call him and use appropriate language:hmm:

    I'd talk to the plow guy. Give him a beer and show him the problem. He's probably just a guy trying to make a few bucks so his old lady will get off his back. Have him push the pile elsewhere. There's no reason to get into a pissing match.

    Besides, you've got to live in that neighborhood, so why make things more difficult for yourself? If the plow guy gives you a hard time, then talk to the neighbor. If he won't comply, then you can take further measures. Legal of course.

    Always run to a neighbors house after doing something like that.
