It’s autumn. Leaves are falling. Leaves are beautiful, but they can be dangerous. Ingrid Goodwin is raking leaves because they are causing a problem. They are stopping water from draining away in the street. Water in the street can cause a flood. Seattle has many rainstorms in the fall, so it is important to clean up leaves.
