SLI's leaf vacuum was seen busy working Ames Walkway on Thursday morning. A two-pass strip was cleared for which elderly neighbors are grateful since they will pay to have the rest cleared along with their own private lots. Not clearing the leaves causes them to re-circulate across already-cleared areas. It's nice to see the green lawn again before Monday's "snow" forecast. The Walkway signs and decorative pillars are down for the off-season.
