As Fall continues to reign over Southwest Oklahoma, the tree-top canopies are really starting to thin out. Much to the ire of homeowners and renters alike, nobody likes raking leaves.

I myself broke down last year and bought a powered blower/vacuum to deal with my neighbors ridiculously gigantic cottonwood trees, but reminiscing the good-old-days, and the simple pleasures of wrecking your dads leaf pile is too much to pass up on a slow day.

It'd almost be too cool to get the entire block on the same page, building one massive pile of leaves, and turning loose every kid daring enough to hop in.
