My dh and i moved to our home about 2-1/2 years ago, hoping this is our last move. Love our house and yard, perfect (legal) place to have all our critters. Unfortunately, new neighbors moved in next door a month or so ago. One young man has a diesel pick-up truck that he idles for 10-20 minutes in the morning which spews fumes into our yard and house. This usually happens when i'm out letting the chickens out. My throat burns, it starts me on a coughing jag, and almost into an asthma attack (i have mild asthma). i spoke to him once and told him how it's affecting me. He promised to try to idle it less, but insists he has to idle it or it won't run right. So now he idles it for 5-10 minutes. Even that amount of time is enough to fill our yard and house with fumes. There are mornings we wake up in our beds literally choking on the fumes. And i worry what is happening to my poor critters in the backyard every day. i've done some research and found how damaging diesel fumes can be, which is scary. i've also read that you don't need to idle any car for longer than 30 seconds, that driving slowly for 10 minutes is the best way to warm up. i really need to talk to him again and try to explain all this. i don't want to be a complaining neighbor, but i feel our paradise is turning into a hell. i don't know if anyone has any suggestions. i guess i just needed to vent. i don't want to move again.
