Today I traded in my old gas lawnmower, which came with the house, for an electric one from Home Depot. Well, not an exact exchange, but for a $100 rebate. I’ve cut the front lawn with it so far and it seems to do the job well. Never mind that it is quieter and less polluting, now I don’t need to store gasoline in my garage anymore. Yes, there is the minor nuisance of having to move a power cord around, but so far it isn’t a very big deal. Just requires a replanning of my usual cutting pattern. Oh, I will not be using the bag as it comes with a mulching attachment.
