Speaking of mowers and winter, I started up my mower successfully the other day after filling its tank. I somehow remembered to run it dry last fall. I also discovered that the right front tire of my riding mower is completely flat. So flat that I can't pump it up while there's any weight on the tire since it has separated from the hub. Looks like I'll be using a car jack on the damn thing so I can get the wheel off.
"I wish I had documented more…" said nobody on their death bed, ever.
