A couple of men in the church came by to “sweep” our church yard. They were able to use an attachment on the back of the lawn mower that swept up fallen leaves and pine needles and left them for the city to come bye and vacuum up. Yes, our city has a big vacuum cleaner that goes around sucking up dead leaves and pine needles!
We usually don’t have to do this until fall is well under way, say around October-November. But, this year it’s been so dry, the poor pine trees starting shedding their dead needles early. They need moisture and less heat – neither of which are in the forecast.
Here’s a photo of the vacuum truck!
