Didn't really have any near us this year. Not even any smoke. Had some blackouts, but we have a generator now.

So leaf raking turns out to be a waste of time.......kant win.....

That's one thing my Dad figgered out on his last house, 2 acres of an old turf farm he planted only evergreen trees, lawn was a mess though, all the topsoil was scalped by the turf folks.....took years to recover....
