Converting a light socket into a grounded outlet

This is what I see every morning! (see photo) Yes, I could (and do) sweep it but with my back "out" on occasion it's hard to sweep them the full length of our walk... every day! :) Sometimes they are 6 inches deep (lots and lots of trees over our home!) HERE IS MY "QUESTION: I would like to convert a light socket into a grounded outlet (outside) for a leaf blower. I have seen them for 2 prong conversion, and I have an outside light on my porch .... but am concerned that a large leaf blower (with a grounded outlet) may carry too much wattage to do this safely. Thoughts?
