Me & My Muse – Day 482: Farewell to Foliage – Salvo Edition

It was once said that the tarp was the most effective method to dispose of leaves, whether you live in a rural or urban lot.

Having taken the time to critique this,  this would’ve been true.  But believe it or not, there actually is a more effective way to deal with those wretched leaf corpses.  Enter the leaf blower.

Now before you dismiss my declaration that the leaf blower is effective,  let me alter the scenario a little bit.  Contrary to what you’re thinking, this is not a leaf blower that you can hold.  This leaf blower operates on a 9 Horsepower motor with a air blowing capacity of 2200 CFM.  What does that mean?  This leaf blower has nearly SEVEN TIMES the blowing capacity of a 2-cycle leaf blower, which can blow air at around 375 CFM.  This is not just your standard air musket, but an air cannon!

With that in consideration, the army of leaf corpses will be dispatched very quickly.  No tarp-body bag necessary for dragging thousands of leaf corpses into the woods.  Just a costly secret weapon that will literally “blow them away”.

Now I am psyched to see how this leaf-blowing juggernaut works.  But in order to do that, I need to get ready – quick.


Muse:  Hurry!  It looks like the annihilation of leaves has already begun.

You don’t have to say that twice.  In ten minutes or less, I will be out there.

Muse:  We’ll see!

Mark my words!  I’m on my way to see this wonderful leaf blowing machine.  One that has actually managed to make the tarp obsolete.


That’s the gist of today.  Take care of the leaves, get a haircut and visit my friend in Mt. Pleasant.  He’ll be at his parents so I will finally be able to see him.

Today’s high is going to be 48 degrees and the silver lining is seeing my friend tonight and watching this awesome leaf blower deliver deadly salvos to the army of dead foliage.  Leafy cadavers, prepared to be blown away!

To those of you who love taking of yard work in an easy and efficient manner, I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  He better hurry!  The slaughter will already be over by the time he gets out there!

I heard that!
