First it started with your typical leaf blowing. I have never done this before so it was new and eye opening. It really does take skill for those guys who do yard work to corral those leaves to where they should go. I have more respect for those guys even though they use machines that tend to be loud and smell like exhaust.
After I coaxed the leaves into a smaller area, my dad appeared with a couple new attachments for the blower. He said that it vacuumed too. I was not sure what to expect, but I put the nose to the ground and it started to suck up the leaves. It was a little awkward, but it got the job done.
Here are some pics of me in action
