Leaf blowers...WTF?

As I was walking my dog the other day, I witnessed a woman blowing her recently mowed grass to the middle of a cut-de-sac. Why? The leaf blower does nothing beneficial, in my opinion. Especially if you are a neighbor that does not have one to blow your neighbors junk back their direction. In SLC, there is usually a small breeze blowing, so that nice well blown pile will most likely end up spread between several yards within the cul-de-sac.

After I mow my yard, I sweep up as much of the trimmings that made it onto the pavement. I then either put it in the trash can or put in an area of the yard that does not have grass. Perhaps I am naive, but I really don't see the benefit of just blowing your junk somewhere else.
