No trees, nothing to sweep up

Well I guess now there truly is no money for leaf pickup or clearing drains or anything else in the City of Trees. It is raining as I write this, and the gutters are full of leaves in our east Modesto area, although while driving through a new subdivision off Floyd the other night at 8:30, there was a street sweeper working, sweeping away nothing as there are no trees there yet. Easy work, I guess; never fill the sweeper that way.
