She smacked us pretty hard last year. You might consider shining her shoes instead.

No doubt. Why piss her off even more. It's a woman, you need to treat her nice.

Mother nature says: "Sorry about last summer's drought conditions. Here, let me make it up to you with some extra moisture. Oh, sorry that's not exactly right either... whoops!"

In Mo as well and temps have been forecasted to be low, but it doesn't really matter. I mowed last week, and we've had temps in the 60's & 70's which caused the grass to grow for this weeks schedule. Mowed yesterday and getting ready to head out now.

A couple weeks of warm temps then 2 days of low temps then jumping back into the 60's isn't going to bring a screeching halt to spring growth.

The only thing that may cause delays in next week's schedule is the rain for the first 3 days of the week.

Ditto.

The grass isn't going to stop growing now that it's out of dormancy. It would take multiple days at 30* for night time temps to get it to really slow down. Cool season grasses thrive in this weather.
