I've been living in my house for ten years now. New houses have gone up around and I have a new neighbor accross the way. Occasionally i burn cardboard boxes, nothing much. Yesterday I burned a box my MTP supplies came in (including my new sheffield knife!). It had been raining two days so everything was wet.

Soon three fire trucks and two cop cars pull up. It's dark at this time. They are looking for a fire. I told them I burned a small box. They said "did you know it's illegal?" I said "yes. It was a small box." They said "do you know you need a permit?" I said "yes, it was a small box." They said no charges would be filed. They put out the ashes with a big fire extinguisher.

This nosey woman annoys me. She's obviously a city dweller moved to the country. It had been raining for two days, did she think the woods was burning down? My garage door was open, my lights were on and I was working outside. Why didn't she walk out to check on it before calling the whole darn city out? Am I wrong in being annoyed?

Maybe she should get a ticket for filing a false report. At my work the neighbor is constantly complaing delivery trucks come at 6:30 am he says they can't come before 7:00am. If they do he comes down takes a pic and emails it to the administrator. If someone squeels there tires leaving he calls. If someone has music playing coming in he is out with camera to take pics and call or call police. He called the fire dept. and reported a fire
because the kitchen dept was using a small round walmart special charcoal grill to cook hamburgers. He had called and spoke to me twice before and I told him it was only a small charcoal grill. He told the fire dept he didn't want the barbeque to burn down his house.

If you know it was illegal and your niehgbor obviously knows you violated the local laws, I don't know what your beef is. Sounds like you were lucky not to get a ticket.

Good one! A friend of mine actually tried that once. The fire marshal wasn't quite sure how to handle that one.

I've been told it's legal to burn in a barrel with a screen over the top. That's the route I'll be going. As for Ms. Nosey, people like her are best ignored.

I love to do stuff that is perfectly legal, but drives these people nuts. I live in the country and I can legally shoot my guns anytime, I have my own 100 yard range setup. I had a neighbor that would go nuts if she heard a gun go off, There house is 300 yards away. They called me a couple of times and said that they thought I was shooting there horse!

Stupid is as Stupid does!

Get a 55 gallon barrel & cut it in 1/2, throw a grate over it & you now have a BBQ grill. Not much they can do to you then.

Having spent a couple years in NY, I was amazed at the deep conviction on the part of alot of folks there that the Nanny State needed to involve itself in every detail of folks' lives. Good luck in CT.

Unless there is a local prohibition, I think the metal basins with covers and completely enclosed 'outdoor' fireplaces might get you by - its the route I am going myself. We live in the city limits w/no outdoor burning of open fires - but enclosed grills, etc. get a pass.

A carboard box of wine should do the trick.

Aww,nothing like candle light(or trash fire light,kinda cool in a vagabond sorta way;might appeal to her Bohemian side) and a box o' wine to make magic happen.

Im on the F.D. here in my hometown. Such calls annoy me. The only thing is, burning is legal here w/o a permit as long as we are not in drought conditions (then its REALLY annoying). All in all I wish people would just mind thier own business. The world would be a much better place.

You guys have NO IDEA what a crazy neighbor is.... I refer to my neighbor as the "excrement expert". My neighbor walks by my fence daily to count the number of dog piles in my YARD.. (MY YARD WHICH IS FENCED IN..) and takes picture daily. He has gone to the city council a half dozen times to try and get the city to create an ordinance that would mean that dog owners would have to pick up dog piles in their own yards immediately after their dogs did their jobs. The City council doesn't have time to create such an ordinance but my neighbor speaks weekly at the city council meeting during the open forum... and the meetings are shown on our local TV channel.... Oh, I forgot to mention that each time he speaks he mentions my name and yard as the problem. I have had the county health inspector over, members of city hall, the animal control, and the sheriff. All of them look at what little crap is in my yard and say the same thing... what a waste of their time. One night while I was at parent teacher conferences my neighbor reached over my fence and flung the piles up against my house. The next night I place my trail cam along my fence and got pics on "old 4 chins" looking over my fence and counting piles, then he noticed my camera and spent the next 2 hours trying to set up a wind sock in his yard to trigger my camera. If I knew how to download pics I would send some because they are funny as ****.... He is a retired old man from the mines who believes that what he says and does in our community means something. He spent days at our local cememtary watching cars go in and out and cars that were just passing thru he reported their license number to the police for trespassing. My neighbor and I have also believed that for over a year he has been listening in to our phone conversation. Right now he is on vacation to California for another 4 weeks and our neighborhood has never been more pleasant. He has called the cops on just about every family in the neighbor for one reason or another. If you have a lot of company coming in and out of your house you must be selling drugs, if you have a bonfire in the back yard he calls the cops, if your having a BBQ and drinks in your back yard he has called the cops for noise issues. I will compare my neighbor with anyone in the world and win.. Right now our village is w/o its IDIOT....

IF SOMEONE CAN TELL ME HOW TO SEND PICS I'VE GOT A COUPLE OF DOOZIES OF MY NUTTY NEIGHBOR............ OR I CAN EMAIL THEM TO SOMEONE.

tis the season.... get outdoors and breathe in the fresh air.

OVER AND OUT!
