It's the Fall in New England. There are leaves on the ground. People are going to use leaf blowers to clean them up. It was 3PM not 2AM, GET OVER IT!!!!

Agreed, BH. This town is so weird sometimes but often it makes for some pretty amusing police log reads!

How about grabbing a rake and helping your neighbor instead of complaining that they are trying to do something with their property while you sit on your rear sipping tea.

I'm getting over three leaf-blowers outside my windows at 7:20 am on Friday. I'm getting over watching in horror as a leaf-blower guy sandblasts the side of my car (on-street parking) with gravel and other bits. I'm getting over the gas fumes that come through my A/C three times a week during the summer. And to Sean: Yeah, I did grab a rake today, to gather up all the leaves that the landscaper blew onto my property.

1) 7:20am is alot different than 3:30 in the afternoon, that is actually against the law in most places and would not draw ridicule if the police were called that early. 2) If you are using your A/C at 7:20am you are wasting energy and contributing to global warming, I suggest opening the windows on the other side of the house. 3) Talk to your neighbor and ask him/her to call the landscaping company about blowing leaves into your yard and onto your car. If your neighbor is a big enough jerk to refuse to do anything about it there are other avenues you can try.

If you don't like the way things are done here...MOVE! Crying and stomping your feet isn't going to change our use of leaf blowers. Go outside and tell a few elderly people to start raking so they don't disturb you, and see what happens.
