My Bionic Hearing is Validated

So I just found this decible chart. Here are some of the items listed:
Airplane: 101db at 500ft
Leaf Blower: 82 db at 25 feet
Wake (from boat): 73db
Autum Day winds and birds: 55db
Truck's air brakes: 90db

You have to admit, those leaf blowers are the worst!

Yeah, leaf blowers are bad for the environment, too. Fortunately, our leaves are usually too wet to be blown, though we do own a leaf blower.

I just took Hutton to get a hearing test from an Auditory Integration techician. He recommends doing treatment series for it -- surprise, surprise! :) But, hey, it's covered by insurance, and I'm willing to try anything once! We'll see how it goes.
