Thanks for the comments.

Michelle, if you want it, I have a T shirt for you.

Most of the postings disagreeing with me fall under the category of "it doesn't bother me, so what is your problem, it shouldn't bother you". I think this is a sociopathic attitude, kind of the golden rule in reverse.

When somebody fires up a leaf blower on a nice quiet calm day, for me it is worse than a beautiful sunny and unseasonably warm day turning to cold, damp, dark and windy.

I do appreciate quiet and beauty; when you see sad things happen to people on a daily basis it reinforces the importance of savouring each day as a gift. Leaf blowers are one sure way to destroy the enjoyment of our urban environment.

If anyone wants to link to this article for whatever reason, consider it pre-approved.
