The side of my house runs along a street. Out the dining room window you can see the two houses across that street. Today the public schools had a “hurricane” day because of Ida. The folks across the street had just had their yard done before the storm hit and all of the pine straw had been cleared from the driveway. It was coated today from the wind blowing the needles off the trees. The two boys living at that house (ages 7 and younger) were using their little air pump (the one that you use for air matresses etc) to blow away the pine straw. They cleared a small patch; the older one went inside leaving the younger one with the task. He seemed to get bored and leaving the pump on the front step, he went inside. We didn’t see them again. Nice try.
