Rake or blow leaves? Which, if either, do you do? (Or is it "shovel leaves" along with that dump of snow you got?)
I rake leaves, needles too --- no electricity sucking leaf blowers on my property, thanks. Some people swear by leaf blowers, but I wonder what their reaction is when the electricity bill comes in the mail. (Plus, do we as a society really need to condone these inefficient, non-environmental leaf blowing contraptions? I think they should be banned and people caught using them should be forced to rake leaves on public properties.)
I can't help but wonder how many out there have attempted "snow & leaf blowing" with a leaf blower... I can hear these 'creative genuises' now:
"Honey, Jack nextdoor has a winter snow blower --- always wanted one of 'em, but I've already got this here leaf blower 'n the leaves, they'se still on th' ground along with that foot o' snow... hmm, betcha the leaf blower'd do it all in one fell swoop!"
