I figured if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. I bought a leaf blower. It’s a powerful beast, too. Like wielding a tornado. I learned a few lessons my first time out with it. I went prepared with glasses and earplugs, but I forgot a hat. I was clearing out the leaves and old birdseed near the walkout behind the house and then had to spend some time cleaning birdseed out of my hair afterward. Live and learn.
