Spring is still a long way off E-man. It's only the middle of January. Be patient and enjoy the vacation.

I hope we have an early spring up here, but i have a feeling we wont, up in wisconsin that is. Yesturday it was in the 50's all our little snow we had is gone, all is left is brown/greenish grass with some of my patterns from last season still showing. I think we r going to pay for all this nice southern weather in Feb. and into March, with snow and cold weather.
But i am ready to cut right now if the grass would grow, for now its vaccation time until school starts again.

Hey "lawncare" maybe you should look into going to the YMCA to take your mind off of the outdoors, :D Just a suggestion

well, since winter has been non existent so far, i think its going to show up and kick us in the pants pretty soon. i think we will have a late spring. somebody the other day said the farmers almanac predicted a nor easter on april 14th. time will tell. i just want to mow or plow. if snow comes great, if warmth comes, great too. winter makes me too lazy.

somebody the other day said the farmers almanac predicted a nor easter on april 14th.

If i recall correctly about this story, told by my grandfather who was told by his grandfather etc..(you get the idea) The first year of publication of the farmers almanac they predicted a snowstorm in the middle of june or july in north dakota i think.(or at least that area)

they had printed that, and it was intended to be a joke. anyways, it ACTUALLY DID SNOW during the time fram specified. So, as a result, people began to believe the farmers almanac as the bible for farmers.

now this is a story that was passed down in my family. i cant prove or disprove it. its just a story.

Don't know when it will start, but it might be a wet one for us. I heard on NPR that the pacific is warming again.

I agree with Richard. Enjoy the time off. Its too early to have spring fever. That is Feb. You can do all kinds of planning this time of year.

I used to farm in ND. I grew up there and I have seen snow in June. Beginning of June '98 I was seeding crambe while it was snowing. It was wet heavy stuff that melted off by afternoon.

By the way crambe is a oilseed used in industry. '98 was my last year farming. Had an auction in '99 and moved to WA.

And thans for clarifying what crambe is. i didnt have a clue, and would have asked you, if you hadnt said.
