You are Zone 5 right? You can probably sod now no problem. I would really hesitate on seeding at this point - esp. with this ultra cold weather we have been having.

In your area seed could be tough, sod will work it just get it down fast and water the hell out of it and pray for above average temps. Make sure you put down some starter fertilizer before the sod, makes a huge difference.
