Leaf letting

The town known for its Frank Lloyd Wright tours could easily market a color tour each autumn. A slow drive up and down the residential streets of Oak Park is a stunning jolt to the eyes. River Forest is equally glorious. Trees exploding with red, yellow and orange all compete for attention. Nothing gives pause like fallen fiery sugar maple leaves on a brick street, such as Humphrey.

Would be great if they included earplugs to drown out the sound of leafblowers. What is so wrong with leaves on your grass people! Greenie Oak Parkers love their 2 stroke polluting engines on their grass. Spewing smoke and obnoxious noise.
