    (continued from panel’s caption) …and wait for the lawn to dry after the storm is over.

    Yes, rain, lots and lots of rain, and snow. And storms like you would only experience once in your lifetime coming every year. Heat drives weather.

    Sorry, but no – I hate mowing the lawn. But maybe if I owned a riding mower ……………..

    Jupiter and Saturn sure seem to have some very violent weather – how much heat do you think is there?

    The grass needs rain, to be able to grow, so you can mow it.

    Oh Deere, John.

    My lawn tractors usually last me about ten years. Change the oil, etc. to make them last.

    Been here on the old Virginia ranch near DC almost forty years now

    I do try to get one with more HP each time.

    Lucky me, I really love it here, an acre and a half in grass and surrounded by acres of forest land. No neighbors and thirty minutes into town, on a good day.

    My Plugger car is a ten year old Lexus ES 300 and still runs quite well. On the other hand, wife had to get a new Chevy due to a lot of travel.

    Plug on old timers.

    This plugger should have lived in southern Michigan, or especially nothern Indiana last summer when there was a drought and it never rained. But then you don’t have to mow the lawn when that happens.

    I know how he feels, I bought a beater 4X4 a few years back for winter driving. Not only did it NOT snow any that year, I think for the first time in 40+ years, it was one of the warmest winters for our area ever!

    ^No need for a 4×4 that eats gas when an old front drive econocar will go through snow. The old cars have more clearance. One time I was driving when the roads were closed because of deep snow, but I didn’t know it because it was so early. I was driving a ’92 Corolla with worn out all season tires. Heads were snapping in shock and jaws were dropping by those guys in huge trucks. They almost seemed offended. The tires are skinny on those cars and that bites into the snow more.
