I'd love to do a socialogical survey of people using leaf blowers. I saw a guy last week (on that really windy day) with his leaf blower. It took about 4 minutes for every leaf on the street to blow back on his lawn after he spent half an hour blowing them off. Pretty fascinating stuff.

I live behind the Real Estate Board office on York and they hire a 'landscaping' company that comes by every couple months with a whole pile of these things. In the summer the blow all the dust and dirt off of their parking lot over our backyard fences onto patio furniture, bikes etc.... in the fall they blow all the leaves off their parking lot over our fence and onto York. I saw a local resident yelling and screaming at them the last time they were there and he doesn't even live on our stretch. My neighbours and I are perplexed at 2 things:

  1. Why in the world does a parking lot need to be blown clean of fine dust? Is it damaging the car tires??

  2. Do they think they are being neighbourly by blowing the stuff over everyone's fence?? Heck, one of these days I'm going to get them to come over and blow off my backyard patio when they're done.
