I might need to find a new neighborhood... Now, I realize I'm not the most outgoing person out there, and I don't really know a lot of my neighbors, but...

We got socked in with 20" of snow this weekend. The HOA has a contract with a snow removal company, so in theory we were supposed to get our streets cleared relatively quickly. By noon today, the plow still had not come, so we started digging ourselves out. About a dozen people were out with shovels in hand, clearing the street. Since I couldn't do much heavy lifting yet because of my surgery, I did what I could, then decided to make some hot cocoa for everyone else who was helping. Only three people accepted the offer... and then only after I offered alcohol to go in it. :-/

The world has become a remarkably un-neighborly place. It's very odd (having grown up very friendly with at least some of the neighbors)

I run into that problem a lot. People are not very friendly, I've had more confrontations than greetings where I live.

Y'all live too far from Arlington.

Let me rephrase, then.

Y'all live outside my preferred commuting distance.

Unfortunately, not really. My preferred commute is under 30 minutes each way, though I realize that significantly restricts my options.
