Feuding Neighbors Create “Sno-Man’s” Land


During World War One – the Great War – trench warfare was the order of the day. Long muddy trenches formed the front lines of battle as bombs fell and occasional forays were launched from both sides. One-hundred years ago the combatants were dug-in and engaged in deadly fighting.  The strip of land that ran between the trenches came to be known as “No-man’s land” and was littered with corpses from both sides.

My apparently feuding neighbors, perhaps in tribute to the centennial of WWI, have created a “sno-man’s” land! Rather than just clear the snow right across each step, they seem to have decided it’s each man for himself. I can’t wait to see how they handle mowing the lawn!

In today’s Daily Prompt we are asked to write about drawing a line in the sand. It appears my neighbours have drawn a line in the snow!

  12. Haha that looks familiar – I used to live in Montreal, and I wondered if there was some sort of duty-sharing etiquette for shoveling the stairs. I was always fortunate enough either to live on the ground floor or have my steps underneath a balcony.
