When will we be ready to mow in Indiana?

When do u Indiana Veteran guys think we will have mowable grass out here? I know there are a few high spots in town, but in general?
I'm hoping about a week from today myself but we are not having an early warm streak like we did last year so who knows it could be 2 weeks.

I'm thinking mid april for you. We start most years right around the first of April, but no warm days so far this year.

I'd give it another week or two. The crab grass is starting to grow nicely!

It is like that here too. Usually by now stuff is green, there are a few spots. For the most part though all i see is brown. I made alot of money snowplowing so i could care less though.
