Close enough to see the steam clouds from TMI and Limerick. I was born shortly after the accident. Next to a hog farm and a pothead.

So, just to clarify, the clouds were coming from TMI and Limerick and not the pothead.

State corrections is taking care of the pothead right now. So just from the power plants.

Lake Michigan <1 mile west. Can't actually see the lake as it is ~100 feet below the surrounding land. Makes for some beautiful sunsets and nasty winter winds!

~ 1/2 mile to first neighbor (we can see their lights in the winter when leaves have fallen) 1.2 miles to county road, about 20 miles from where AEP's "Big Muskie" used to operate.

 

We see lots of wildlife, our cows, and lots of QUIET ! except since the last full moon on Sunday, each night this week the coyotes have been extra vocal, can give you chills out on the patio coming in from chores as they echo up the valley. Mamma's got her 357 and I most always have something on my hip and longer tools close by and available. Our neighbor to the East lost a bull calf a few years back when he didn't have any fire-power handy. Seems like the mild winter has multiplied the pack a good bit.

Yep it was one of the ladies used to hold my nephew while my mom shopped. We knew the manager there and from what he said the killer hide in the store the day before and waited for them to open. He believed it was targeted because one of the women was in a bad relationship and the BIL left town the same day. 

Some people are messed up. :(

I think interesting neighbors should count, for us folk out in the woods they might be the only entertainment around! We live amongst a fairly large gathering of Amish, they are great folks and hard workers. Have them finishing our basement out right now, best work I have seen in quite some time. They also beat the best local contractors price by a wide margin!

These ponds are right behind my house.  There are lots of deer and wildlife all around us here..  I have a trail cut so folks can walk back to the ponds..  HERE

 

Also noteworthy is 15 minutes away is the Grand Canyon of the EAST

 

The finger lakes are another boon to living in WNY as well..  

 

Those are the pluses and the taxes are the minus!   :wallbanging:

I  do live a couple of miles from the old Laboratory Mill. A guy I know restored it for his wife to use as a wedding chapel. It was also on the first episode of Sleepy Hollow. It was the unfinished basement part of the building they holed up in for the night.

I live 1/4 mile from a gun shooting range, well two now. They expanded operations a few years back. Christmas day is always interesting with the guys trying out their new toys.

The state and local cops use it too. It gets real noisy shortly after a gun buy back. The cops bring the more uncommon firearms up and let loose.

There have been a couple of times I thought there was a war going on.

I forgot, I live right down the hill from the police gun range, been there since the 70's. We too get to hear some "fun" noises, there is an occasional automatic sessions going on up there and some really BIG stuff.

Makes it nice though, when the boys are in our field, people don't realize that it's coming not the gun range.
