Well, we're more than halfway through with the raking. This is the pile we have so far:

That pile is 4' high. That's going to be a lot of compost!

We're not used to raking leaves. At the parsonage we were on a little knoll, on one of the highest spots in the township, and the leaves just blew away most of the time without effort on our part. We've gained a LOT in having less wind-noise. For example, we can sit outside and read without having the papers all blow away. And less noise! But there are a few benefits to the wind: blowing away mosquitos and flies, and blowing away leaves.

On the other hand, if we can compost those leaves, I betcha I'll be glad to have them instead of losing them to the fickle wind.
