Thoughts from the suburbia
Living up the American Dream ?? Nah..well…kind of…..but it just made plain economic sense to buy a house (and sign away our souls during the process) and move into the ‘burbs. Well…technically our zip code falls within the city limits – but lets not get into semantics – we have the rows of houses with lawns spread out, porches in the front, decks at the back and considerable backyard spaces. Fortunately, unlike a lot of suburbs I have seen in Rochester, NY – we do have quite a few street lights.
One observation – I used to believe that people moved to the suburbs to get away from the noise and hustle-bustle of the city – however so far I have found worse sound pollution here due to the constant roar of the lawn movers from one house or the other. Similar to the ‘bigger is better’ car syndrome – these people seem to suffer from ‘louder is better’ syndrome in terms of lawn mowers. Tone it down fellas !
