It is 8:30 on a Saturday night and I just got through asking the man using a leaf blower in the church parking lot across the street to please stop now.
I can literally hear this machine while standing in the back of my house with all the doors and windows closed. He indicated he is doing this work now because no one is there. But this is a residential neighborhood and we are here.
Leaf blowers are incredibly loud, incredibly annoying, and a huge waste of gas. They blow a bunch of dust and items from one property onto another, only to have to be blow away again in a few days. Signed, my ears hurt.
