Got to work yesterday, and was told that there were no computers or phones working?

Seems a Construction Company ran an Auger through a Micro Fibre line in Downtown Des Moines.

Half of Des Moines was out of communications and no idea how long it would be down.

At 10:00, the past two hours had seemed like 6 hrs. So I told my boss I would take the rest of the day off and use personal time.

With tearing Down the house in August I had not mowed since the 4th of July so grass and weeds are about 2 ft high.


Went home and mounted the mower on the 1500 and mowed for 2 hours. At that time the tail wheel axle broke on the mower. Previous owner had welded the axle in the fork and it was a cobbled up mess.

So I took it off, cut the axle and drilled out the fork, went to the farm store and got a bolt to make a new axe and put it back together(yeah it's cobbled, but better than last time). Them mowed another 2 hrs. The West Slope is done, Tonight I will start on the East Slope.
