We finally got a break in the rain so I thought I'd go mow the lawn before my brother in law showed up with his bailer.  Figured I'd use the TurfTrac so I could park it by the road when I was done in hopes of selling it.  Just about cried when I saw this:

Your day seems like a lot of mine! Sorry to see you had to dig the tractor out to use it! Did it do any damage??

That's a real bummer---  seems some things happen just because they can. Any damage done to the Turf Trac? Shame about having to restack the wood too. Some days are just like that.

No damage to the TurfTrac.  The wood got restacked but I had to rebuild the left mast row in pic 3 (which has two more rows to the left of it).  It tipped and toppled the other two rows.  It just never ends.  One of our dogs had a mini-stroke.  Now she won't eat and walks like she is dizzy.  One of our new bunnies is malnourished and has to be bottle fed.  One of our new chicks broke a leg (no idea, don't ask) and met an untimely end.  I bent one of the new axle seals on the DB.  Ruined three sets of clothes changing them.  More on that later.  Wife wanted to do some trim mowing, but the primary push mower wouldn't start.  The brake cable on the back up push mower seized up.  The back up back up mower spun the flywheel nut off.  The wood pile was a "what now?" moment.

Well, I've been told alcohol isn't the answer. My response to that was 'who asked you?'.

That always depends on what the question is.
