|Just moments before I was sitting on this mower.|
I always mow the field with my big tractor. Got it in my head that it would be good to mow a walking path around the rim of the field with my riding mower. This mower would cut a lot closer.
First I lost the key to the mower so I ordered another from Amazon. It got here quickly and as soon at the UPS man delivered it I was off and running.
Mowed around once and decided to go a second time. Thought there was a lot of dust stirring up until I realized it wasn't dust, it was smoke and looked down to see flames lapping at my feet.
I jumped off the mower, called the neighbors who came with fire extinguishers but not enough to stop the flames from spreading so called 911 and the Volunteer Fire Department arrived putting it out before it could rage further.
Now I have a walking path but it has a rather large black melted object in my way.
|Fire going up my Fir tree. Glad no structures were close by.|
