It’s long past time to ban leaf blowers. I spent the first two weeks of December in isolation while the source of my respiratory illness was diagnosed. I was almost killed by an airborne virus. It turned out to be a very common virus.
Leaf blowers hurt asthmatics, children, the elderly and every other resident of our Valley. Please use a broom. My story has a happy ending. Many others die.
