what is wrong with my lawn?

What is causing all of these brown spots? Soil tests came back very good. Only need to add N to the lawn this year. I am on mobile so will add the pics very shortly!

Salted driveway makes sense along the driveway,,, but what about the other places??? I've seen snow mold growing under the snow but I have never seen it actually kill anything... it doesn't really look like voles or mice living under the snow...

could it be a different variety of grass that is late greening up??? that center pix looks like it could be different grass from the width of the brown blades...
I'm assuming you guys got some of this rain over the past 24 hrs.,,, any change???
