My wife's grandparents were from a very small town. More like a cross roads for farmers than anything else. On the DW'a grandfather 90th birthday naturally there was going to be a big party. We had the BBQ going, people from all over eating and congradualting the old guy when all of a sudden, the local high school marching band comes up the driveway in full uniform. Those kids put on a full show for him as a birthday present. That is what I think of when I think of small town.

No pizza delivery
No street lights
No garbage pick up
No city water
No cable
Slow internet
dusty roads
smelly animals
people drive too slow
snakes
No one gets in a hurry
Hay trucks/farm equipment on the road
Businesses close too early/not opened on Sunday

I've heard all the above.

My neighbors from CA, although good people, put up bright, I mean bright, security lights on the road, wanted to pave the road and put up a gate at the entrance and complained about gun fire. Another neighbor from CA cut down all the trees on his property, which is his right, complains because there is mud on the road (chip and tar), he put roundup along the edge of the road on his property which washed into the stream (killing its inhabitants) which seeps into the water table. Michigan filled in the drainage ditches along the side of the road. Had one guy get his nickers in a wad because my horse pooped on the road. He screamed at me "who is going to clean that up!". Remember this is rural agriculture/farm designated properties.

You should bring the neighbors sacks of road apples as a present. You know, be neighborly and whatnot.
