Dat gum it!

Rate this Entry
Well, I WAS trying to get the lawn mowed today, the garden weeded and the shrubs trimmed. Apparently the gods have other plans, because EVERY time I manage to get my lawnmower to run and start to mow, a storm blows in and unleashes holy hell on the property.

I mowed for a bit anyway, in the pouring rain with lightening flashing around me until ds came out and threw a hissy fit.

I look at it this way, you have a greater chance of winning the lottery every week then you do getting struck by lightening, and I'm not RICH yet.

Oy vey,

    Oh honey I know it gets frustrating when you're trying to get it all done and it keeps raining! But you shouldn't be out mowing when there is lightening in the area! I use to push myself and one day in the middle of a big thunderstorm I was running toward the house as I finished up my work and Lightening stuck me. I was thankfully close enough to the house I sled on the wet grass and went under the porch and it broke the current and saved my life. I still have marks for m it 35 years later. Lightening isn't something you should play with!
