we've had snow flurries yesterday and today down here.
i'll take snow over rain any day though.
down here we can't really wait to do maintenance in early spring. as soon as it warms up a bit the weeds are already 6" tall. this can happen it a day or two. it's practically overnight.
actually there's already weeds growing in every yard down here already. they just haven't gotten tall enough to worry about cutting them yet. they keep getting stunted by these cold spurts.
