Well, it was bound to happen. Leaf blowers are the new evil. What next? Playful children, dogs barking, spray gun machines, chainsaws, power washers, crows, motorcycles on residential streets, lawn mowers, air guns? Can you imagine what gardeners will charge if they have to take the time to rake or sweep? What about us retirees who love to maintain our homes but, because of “old bones,” cannot rake like we used to? We have pride in our homes, and the sound of a leaf blower is a positive. Get real.
