You might live in a rural community if the Friday night football game was interrupted by a dog running across the field and the Sunday morning post on Nextdoor.com is trying to locate the owner of some cows hanging out by the side of the road.
I prefer living in rural communities. As you drive away from the city, there are fewer and fewer cars on the road. There are also long stretches of road surrounded by woods and fields. However, traffic jams can still happen even in the middle of nowhere.
