    Yes, I've picked up 16 bags so far. I usually do almost 50 bags - front yard only! So I have a long way to go. My husband blows away the leaves in the back yard, but others get trapped in the front of the house! What frustrates me the most is that they are NOT my leaves. The houses across the street border an undeveloped HEAVILY treed area! They are also up on a hill, so they don't bother raking the side of the hill- which means the leaves all blow across the street - especially considering the wind direction is pointed directly at me! It helps somewhat this year to have those two big trees gone that the power company cut down for us. Now I have only a few small trees in my front yard. I am trying to do at least one bag a day - which gives me 31 days before Thanksgiving to finish!!! Sorry for all the complaints - but it is very FRUSTRATING!

    I hope you get it done slowly, OM I don't envy you at all. I have only got a few trees and they make a bit of mess but nothing like yours...
    Merry Christmas to all...
