Mowing the lawn in a storm

December 11th, 2010 at 07:57 pm

Today I got one of my neighbours to start my mower for me. I canít start it but I can push it. So they will start for me as they know that IĎm not asking them to mow my lawn. As he was going away to visit his mother in few hours I had do then or not at all. So at 3.30pm I got the mower started and off I go, I could hear a storm coming in but at times they go around us, it takes about 50 minutes to mow my lawn as itís on different levels and you need to empty the catcher a few times too!

I got the front & side done and most of all the backyard but for one patch about three push of the mower would do it, around a garden bed before the storm started to come down quite heavy and I had to give up all together, I still need to go back and clean the mower and catcher this morning.

It was so heavy that the state cricket match a 3 miles away was washed out for the day and there was minor flooding too! (over 30mm here) We had two days of fine weather and the rain is back again.

I had a no spend day today.

    I used to have a mower I couldn't start by myself either. One of the joys of apartment living is not having to mow the lawn anymore!

    I have very weak muscles and canít get it to start when I try only one once in a blue moon. I also flood the motor most times when I do try. Itís quicker to get help as I still can push it for now when I can't then I will have to pay someone to do it for me when.
