Sparks will fly!

Today, with the weather in very fine form, I decided to cut the grass. First time in five months, so it was looking in serious need of a haircut. Things started off fine enough, with the mower trying its hardest to deal with the long grass. Halfway through, a huge spark of electricity flew out from the handle panel. Kind of like a mini firework going off. I was just fortunate I did not actually receive a shock from it. Hannah just so happened to be watching from the window, so needed some good reassuring afterwards. Nothing to do but cut the cable and dispose of the b@st*rd.

So - net result - a half-cut lawn and a need for a new mower. Damn!
