My parents house has lots of big trees that drop lots of leaves. We have been raking but we couldn't keep up. Last Friday Jake and I searched the shed and found the leaf blower. Jake was in guy heaven. If it is loud and powerful than what guy could resist?! But even loud and powerful only work for so long. Since the leaf blower was pretty heavy Jake gave up after he did half the front yard. No problem that is half less for me to do...That night when Aaron came up from SC he mentioned that he thought we had used the leaf blower because there were leaves every were. I looked out and just a few short hours after we had worked so hard, you would not have known it. I am waiting for the rest to fall before I do it again!
