Commentator Peter Smith is waiting with bated rakeby Peter Smith, Minnesota Public Radio
St. Paul, Minn. — The weather should be perfect today to get outside and do some yard work, maybe mow the grass or rakes your leaves.
Of course you can't rake leaves that haven't fallen to the ground yet.
This is a dilemma for commentator Peter Smith, who lives in Hopkins. It seems that every year he can't quite get all his leaves raked before the city stops collecting them in mid-November.
It's become such a problem that he's decided to write a letter of complaint to city officials.
