Whisper Lite

When the Battery Status Light on the handle is GREEN, the battery is charged enough to use the Whisper Lite mower you ordered from Vermont when the Canadian dollar was low. It’s the RED light that will haunt your dreams:
— A solid RED light during regular mowing means the battery’s low. Stop everything and recharge it for at least twelve hours.
— If it lights during heavy mowing, you’re pushing yourself much too hard. Slow down.
— But if starts to flash and the motor won’t start, you’ll just have to call Customer Service, and even they don’t see this too often.


  1. W is for Wind: We arrived to find lots of branches on the ground, most of the porch screens torn off and the barbecue askew. It seemed hard to believe that “just” the wind could have done it, but we had heard there was a windstorm the week after our last visit, and it seemed like the least unlikely explanation. However, we later found the hook and string from a birdfeeder had been passed through a hole at the edge of a screen and tied back over itself many times. So it’s a toss-up between the random power of the wind and macramé vandals.

    The macramé Vandals were known for the sack of Rome.
