We moved here last summer from the northeast where we lived most of our lives. One of the biggest differences we have noticed is that neighbors take the time to stop by and introduce themselves when we moved into the neighborhood, some even bearing gifts such as cookies!
Recently, I was unsuccessful with an attempt to start a lawn mower. Another neighbor, whom I hadn’t met yet, came over and offered the use of theirs. Another example occurred when we were raking up leaves during spring cleaning.
