I didnt know
After having rain for far too long, things dried out just enough to mow the yard yesterday. It was so fun that I did it twice (some sections 3 times). First run at high with bag. In some sections again a little lower with the bag. Last time lower yet without bag. Ok, fun is the wrong word. View attachment 1078872
Last year was the first time that I used a lawn guy- just too damn hot down here. I was short of money this week, or I would have had him out. Normally he is $30 a shot, but with the amount of work yesterday I would have had to pay him $100 to feel comfortable with myself.Last year we started having a lawn service do our 2 acres of yard. They came out today and got stuck 3 times. Now there are ruts in the back yard, but it's mowed. The guy that keeps his horses in our pasture bush hogged the pasture last summer and it's still good...so far.
Record amount of rain this year, and more on the way.

I live in the 101st & Mingo area. One of the tornados passed within 1 mile, but didn’t touch down until it was on the other side of Broken Arrow. We are bracing for the new Tornado season that is upon us.Ewww...that's not good. What part of T-Town are you in, and did you weather the tornados well last spring? I was in Pryor for a couple of months then. Grew up in Sand Springs...well, Prattville across the river.
It was an EF2 that hit just north of me. When I opened the storm door the suction was so much that it almost ripped the door out or my hand. I had a couple of windows cracked slightly open so the air could get out without breaking anything. Haven't went to look for any damage along the road, but the wind was over pretty quick here. I've had worse with just regular wind, but I didn't take a direct hit.Stay Safe
There were two more alerts today, but nothing hit as close as the other day...it was less than a mile away a couple of days ago. SWMBO said a lady she works with had a small one go over her house in town today, but that's about 20 miles away.Dang!
