Ohhh the sound of leaf blowers! They began this morning in earnest. With 45 acres to clean the blowers will be going 8 hours a day for the next 3 weeks.So much for the quiet beauty of the Northwoods. The “Billy Goat” (which is a leaf vacuum and mulcher) saves a lot of time, but it decided to go on strike yesterday by catching on fire. The guys are not too happy. The new parts can’t get here fast enough.
