    man, I don't know about y'all but I have had it up to here :nono: (he is actually showing eye level) with leaves! I know a month or two from now I will wish I had some leaves to clean up, but right now every limb on my body is hurting, my back is killing me. Guess I am getting soft in my old age. :laugh: how many did everyone else do today? we got a couple of full trucks. (I know it is probably not as much as a few of you out there, but its enough for me!) Well sorry to whine, I am just spent today, just need some good sleep. :sleeping:

    Every night I cough up leaf dust till I'm blue. I've got powdered leaves in my eyes that I'm digging out as I type this. Yeah, I hate this time of year.

    I have to say I am surprised you guys are still picking them up. Seems like the areas you both are in you would be done by early November, are they late this year? I guess it has been pretty warm on the east coast this year, maybe that is why.

    We only had 1 fall clean up as of yet. They just started coming down last week and yesterday we were plowing them.

    Nope. They haven't fallen a lot yet. They are behind this year from the drought we had this summer. But I've loved what I've done so far with my new Sthil BR600 backpack blower. That thing is awesome.

    yeah it was a weird season, leaves are falling VERY late, the yards i have done still have leaves on the trees as well, so im sure i will have to go back and do a quick cleanup when they all fall.

    Doing 3-4 per day. Just got a truck loader, and by this saturday it will be paid for. I cant be sick of it yet, at least until the equipment is paid for. Today sucked, it snowed on us all day, the leaves were wet and the wind never stopped blowing!! (The wrong way, of course)
    Every bone, muscle, tendon... in my body hurts, but my wallet is enjoying the feast, so I'll keep working for now, I know it wont be long before I will be wishing I had work.
