I was cutting the grass yesterday when it started to rain, so I donned my poncho to keep the wet at bay. There I was nipping around the garden with the poncho flapping in the wind, and as you know they are not small as they double up for a basha if required. Anyway the wind blew, the poncho flapped straight under the front wheel, the poncho shortened and launched me from the driving seat. I flew through the air like a cross between a salmon on a line and a kids kite, launched by my head and neck sticking through the poncho. The mower thankfully stopped once my rear end left the seat and the safety cut out took command, by this time I had landed and was firmly anchored by the front wheel.
I know it sounds comical and must have been hilarious to have watched, but it just goes to show how easily accidents can happen, and demonstrates just how dangerous grass cutting can be, would never had happened on the quad with a rifle for ballast!
