Whew! What a relief. That must be a load off your mind, OP!

I personally prefer to shovel the stuff myself because I DO like the exercise, love being out in the winter weather/snow, and also I never know when the neighbors are sleeping and don't want to disturb them with the noise of the snowblower--those things are loud as hell when they are close by.
That's true, too! When my ex bought his Mikita drill, suddenly everything inside and outside the house needed drilling!

In our part of the country, snow is light and fluffy. I just get out the leaf blower to clean the walk, etc., where our tractor with a blade, cannot go. I have not shoveled for years.

Shoveling would not be an option for me. Our drive way parking area is 150 feet, by 30 feet. Our lane that runs from the county road, back to our home, is 500 feet.

Using the snow blower to clear the walks, takes 1/4 of the time it takes to shovel.

Iíd be delighted to have a neighbor like this! Canít you just roll with it and maybe offer to do something for him in exchange?
