    Find an old 1970's metric phone with a dial on the front . Hard part is locating a cord to go from phone to computer .

    I'm making a return, too, but only 9 years(?) have flown by. During that time I've maintained the same mile of backwoods mountain road . . . unfortunately, sometimes with the "help" of new neighbors that had no clue how to handle a season average of 8 feet of wet snow.

    Over the past 14 years I've use the same old ATV/plow, tractor/blower and other tools to handle significant storms – until last Saturday when I added a brand new 48" Bercomac snowblower to the mix; just in time for a fresh 8" of snow.

    I'll write up a review of that snowblower later but here's a spoiler alert: diehard fans of Berco blowers probably shouldn't read it.

    Send the neighbors that have no clue here, we can give them advice.

    I always think that I can advise them too. I've owned this property since 1991 and while I might be mistaken, I sort of have snow removal on this particular road down to a science. I have decades of photos and years of videos that I share with new neighbors, not to mention a manual that I created for snow removal. I have only 3 neighbors and the turnover is high, primarily due to winter.

    This is a virtual mountain wilderness, e.g. when a cougar kills a dog the state game dept just takes a report and says "whaddya expect?" New neighbors usually aren't prepared for winter back here so I try to bring them up to speed. Sometimes it works but usually they decided to find out the hard way.
