Letter: Fall leaves bring noisy onslaught

Raking leaves just as fast as any noisy leaf blowers

Autumn is well and truly here.

Dark days, rain, leaves falling and the annual onslaught of testosterone-filled men carrying noisy cannon-like devices called leaf blowers spending hours chasing that last leaf off their property.

I would rather rake and from experience can do the job as fast as any noisy, smelly leaf blower.

Did I imagine it or did Oak Bay consider banning these ear splitting devices? I must have imagined it.
