...one leaf at a time.
3rd day of raking and not much to show for it. The primary reason for this is the giant oak tree in our neighbor's yard which insists on holding its leaves longer than any other tree in the neighborhood. Last year, it didn't drop all its leaves until after several snowfalls and the last yard waste pick-up for the year.
It doesn't look like it will be much different this year but I keep raking because we're trying to get as much taken away by the street vacuuming which is supposed to start this week (and starts in our neighborhood).
