If the grass makes a sound like walking on frozen needles of glass--stay off.
I think you notice the damage most when we have the kind of weather we have been having or when there is a sudden first frost. The grass is stilll feeding pretty good, so there is a lot of water stored in the cells, when it gets cold quick it freezes and expands, the wetter and warmer it has been the closer it is to bursting, step on it and it quietly goes boom!
