I don't anticipate seeing anyone mowing a lawn until the third week of April at best and this is normal.
Oh god no you won't see any top growth for a long time. I am not even planning on being out mowing until the first week of May. I'll be lucky if I'm out by then. The adventitious roots of the plant begin activity around 38 to 42 degrees which after the warmup of this coming weekend, wont be long.
