I love autumn, but I’m not a big fan of raking leaves. No matter how calm the weather is, just start raking, and by the time you have a large enough leaf pile, the wind will be blowing it all over the place. And now that we live out in the country and have a much larger yard with more trees, we have 10x more leaves to deal with! UGH.
Other than on TV and in movies, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen a basement door of the type that Orneryboy and Dirtygirl have on their house. I just think they’re cool.
