    Like most of you, I have two accounts side by side. I was mowing one of them when I noticed tire tracks coming from the road into the yard, through the yard and back onto the road(the account is on a corner). I thought someone could've missed the turn the night before and just ran off the road. I thought nothing of it and kept mowing. That night on the ten o'clock news I saw a report of a high speed chase going through Columbia where I was earlier that day. I watched as they approached the corner where my accounts are and with my jaw on the floor I saw the truck miss the turn, come down the hill, right through the yard, and back on the street! They later stopped him and he had committed a burgulary down the street. This happened 2 hours before I was there! Thank God I wasn't in the Yard! :eek:

    Wow, no kidding. Good to hear you're alright, Jeff. That's a scary thought to think someone could come barreling through a yard while you're on it...

    Keep your eyes open, people!

    Here I thought high speed chases were invented in California by a guy named OJ

    If AJ and OJ were in a high speed chase in California then
    the chases we have around here must be hyperspeed!

    All kidding aside, that's pretty amazing Lawnshark. Maybe sometime I'll tell my story of my run-in with Sugar Ray Leonard.

    You are very lucky you were not on the lawn.

    If this would of been a chase like OJ's, I think a ZTR could of out run him. :D

    I heard a story this season about someones car losing its brakes and coming down the embankment into the neigborhood below.

    I think it was a raised perennial bed that stopped the car???

    Just goes to show you that you have to keep your eyes and ears open at all times!!!
