Winter leaf blowing disruptive

Winter leaf blowing disruptive

Friday afternoon, I set out for a peaceful cross-country ski on the Rio Grande Trail after fresh snow fall the night before. As I skied through the Roaring Fork Club the silence was broken by six gasoline-powered leafblowers clearing snow. Clouds of snow rose above the earth only to slowly return. As I skied through, exhaust fumes pieced the fresh air. These mighty workers had found a new use for one of mankind’s best inventions.
