Not normally would I post negative things, mainly because its mostly small stuff that happens all the time and it don't make good reading, but today is different.
Over the weekend we were away when we got home yesterday the weekend winds had destroyed my canopy. So this morning's first job was to get that back up. Not so difficult until I slipped an whacked my knee so now that is all swollen up and very painful.
It gets worse.............
I was grinding on deck with deck boards down, all of a sudden a massive explosion, lots of misty smoke and a burning in my eyes nose and throat. Immediately I realised the batteries that were under where I was working was the reason. I grabbed the hose and went in with it running just in case there was a fire, but fortunately not.
So this is the result.
The list so far is 6 wrecked traction batteries, 1 destroyed shunt, battery box has been blown apart and on the lid was my almost new power drill. When the lid blew off it must have hit the drill on the underside of the deck metalwork, because this is what it looks like now.
It looks like its been run over by a truck
So that was my seriously expensive day.
