A pox on power tools on Sunday evening

A nearly perfect Sunday afternoon: the temperature is moderate with a slight breeze, and the sun is low in the west. A great time to sit on the patio and enjoy a book with a glass of wine. And then somebody starts up their power mower.

Finally, it ends, and just when you think it's okay to enjoy the patio again, out comes the epitome of suburban noise-makers: the gas-powered weed whacker, and the noise continues.
