Kevin...

My heart goes out to you. This is the same system that came through Western WI, Eastern MN, and IA this past weekend.

I hope that everyone stays safe!!

Kevin, I guess it's time to outfit the Cub with pontoons and a paddlewheel off the PTO. Shouldn't take more than a day or two.....

And it's headed east. Got rain most of the day Sunday in PA. I hope some of that rain veers south into Maryland, we need it bad. But not all at once - no floods, please.

Still hot and DRY here :shock: I got some extended seat time this weekend. Cut the 6 acres on the hill and was covered in red dust :evil: Good thing I had my mask. The seat time was nice but everything was nothing but dried up dust. I sharpened my blades before I started and got a pretty good cut with the Woods 42, It will probably get cut one more time before Stonethrow.
You guys up north of me stay safe and on the high ground :!:
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.
