It sure would be nice if they would rot, just doesn't happen without
rain. It's one of those things I envy about you folks in wetter
climates. On the other hand, I may be raking up crunchy dead leaves in
February but I can usually wear a T-shirt.

Cyndi,
No snow here either...  but foggy icy.  I would take snow over ice any
day.
I never rake leaves..... I believe in mowing even in the middle of
winter so
that they get mulched up.  I have never had too many leaves..... even
when I
find someone that has bagged them up and left them at the curb I take
them
home to rot over the winter then add as mulch in the spring to my
garden.
Much easier than raking too.
