    Your kind gesture just might turn your unfriendly neighbor around! Nice to hear that your power is back on and you're starinto get things back to normal.

    actually no, it will never happen that he will turn into a friendly or even a civil man.

    he complained about the generator noise and said that he was going to complain to the POA.
    so the organge cord to his refrigerator was a way to shut him up.
    imo the way to make him a good neighbor would be a large fence.

    I doubt POA noise restrictions would be enforceable in the aftermath of a hurricane. Having said that, I've been considering buying a generator to have on hand for the next storm to hit Louisiana, and sound is a consideration. There are certainly more important things to think about before and after the storm, but here is a quick, simple, and cheap way to muffle the sound: lay some sheet rock (hot exhaust side) and plywood/pressboard all around it in such a way as not to restrict airflow, but direct the sound into the dirt. Someone posted a method on YouTube:

    We got our power back from transformer that went out, no internate but thanks to t mobile they gave us 2 free months of unlimited WiFi.
    Just got of the phone with my temp agency who lived in Atlantic, she lost her power yesterday. Irma needs to go away

    Weird last year I bought a powerland dual 10000 watts generator that does everything but won't do the ac and hot water at same time . Use propane or gas. We shut off the main breaker and all set. My house is almost 2100 square feet. Plus it did the huge shed that has a upright freezer and window unit ac. I am so blessed
    We had someone connect it to the house

    Like Andrea said thank you from the bottom of my heart for caring and thinking about us
    You all are the best

    It is good to know you've made it without damage.
    I also know what it's like to deal with a difficult neighbor. Last years hurricane Matthew brought a tree down on our home (fortunately not our neighbors too), but throughout the repair we were constantly being harassed about why my fence, which separated our backyards, wasnot being worked on, meanwhile half of our home was crushed.

    Trees are not friends with homes

    Been a year and we're about 90% finished with repairs

    trees are certainly not friends during high winds.
    my poor avocado tree stripped naked.
    it looks like a 30 foot brown flagpole.
