And THIS is why I hate fall :-(

So I got the mower out yesterday, hooked up the leaf rake, and did the side yard. Hauled all the leaves out front and dumped them for the city to pick up. City hasn't picked them up yet, but that's okay, not sure what day they come. But at 2:00 yesterday afternoon, the side yard was clean. 10:30 this morning, it looks like this. That is what fell late yesterday afternoon and overnight. Makes me wanna just start chopping down trees.

What's wrong with the leaves? It's a beautiful landscape, and all that 'garbage' will rot and work as fertilizer. Nature knows what to do, but humans are too stubborn. At worst, you get some grass snakes, but hopefully your hunter will do a great job.

At least you got done what you did, and you didn't have to do it by hand. I just found out they may be in our area either monday or tuesday and I have yet to get any of them into the road. There's a website in our area where people can check to see how soon they are coming to the next section, maybe your city has a similar info line?

@JolietJake Maybe some of your neighbors do, or a store near you where you can look it up and not buy? Our area probably lets people know in the paper too, but it's also shown online where they've been and where they're headed.

We tried that(chopping down three trees) and it didn't work! Neighbors on both sides have huge trees, that dump on our yard until mid December. We don't have any oak trees, but today our yard is totally buried in oak leaves!:( We have one maple in the back yard and four maples out front. The birch tree doesn't do anything at all.
