Is it ok to blow snow into your neighbor's yard?

I recently moved from coastal California to Iowa. I've never lived in snow! In preparation for winter, I purchased a couple of snow shovels and a snow blower. I have a very wide driveway (about 3-4 cars wide). One side of the driveway borders a neighbor's yard. My question is, Is it ok to scrape and blow snow onto her property? The area is downhill from her house, it's not used for parking or anything besides yard. HELP! I'VE NEVER LIVED IN SNOW!

it's rude but only if you like that neighbor. if you don't then it won't matter. if you really want to know, then ask your neighbor if he/she would mind.

Ok, thanks. That's what I figured but the other side of the driveway (my yard) goes uphill, so I was hoping to hear it's perfectly fine lol.

Well, all summer she ejected mowed grass onto my drive but she's a very old lady so I'd just go out and use my leaf blower on the drive lol.

Thank you! That's what I was thinking but it's going to be hard to keep piling it on the other side I think because it goes uphill. Not sure. I'm new to all of this lol!

I'd just ask my neighbor. Tell her what you just told us and that you don't want to be rude.

I was thinking about doing that but I didn't want to sound goofy lol. Ah, Insecurity, you have made my life difficult once again.

Yeh..... I kinda thought it might sound goofy too, but better safe than sorry. Is work any better since you moved there? You had mentioned before you had to leave to escape the illegals.

Would you like them doing so if the situation were reversed? I wouldn't. It's bad etiquette. Start out by being a good neighbor.

I actually asked myself that. I couldnt really decide if it mattered. But judging by most of the answers, I think I'll try to keep it out of her yard. Thanks!

Good thinking. After you've been there and gotten to know your neighbors and feel more comfortable with them you can bring it up. But to begin with it's just good manners

Talk to her and explain the situation. She'll probably be ok with it but it's best to check it out first.

Thanks! I think I'll keep it off of her yard as long as possible, then ask her. She's nice but she DEFINITELY let's her opinions be known lol.

I'd be honest - let her know that you've never dealt with snow before, and you're not sure what the proper etiquette is.

Like the screen name dude. I live in the snow capital.....Buffalo NY. The rule is the snow HAS to go somewhere, anywhere, as long as you're not blocking a driveway or sidewalk nobody should say BOO to ya. Snow is sooooooo much fun isn't it? I've lived here for 30 of my 33 years and I swear every time it starts to snow!!!! Oh yeah, check out my profile, new poem, happy shoveling!!!
