It's snowing on April 11th, 2013

Like seriously, if I wasn't behind schedule enough already, now this. I was gonna finally start clean-ups next week, but now I dunno. Also my crocuses just came out and now are almost covered in snow. Just a couple pics.

Just as aside note these are the same crocuses on Mar 19th, 2012, and some daffodils on Mar 25th, 2012. What a difference from this year to last.

We have similar weather in this market. We had a sucker hole with a couple of weeks in the 60s and even flirting with 70, fruit trees all started to blossom, grass was greening and even some high N folks were mowing. Bulbs were popping, then we plunged back below freezing and took snow and rain for the past week, making everything look hammered and sad.

When it rolls like this, it's a good time to go do some of your tree and rose pruning, then get all your equipment sharp and ready to deal with wet grass. Get your aerations in as soon it melts down enough to see grass, that will be one that you can do before turf actually wakes up enough to cut and the wet ground is actually helpful for deeper cores. The rest? Well, it's just a welcome to outdoor work in the northern climates..lol

At least you can plow and make some money. Here in Se Mich we haven't had much snow in march and it's been freezing out. Grass is just now starting to get some green to it but not growing. Now it's Rained everyday this week and now we have flooding issues. Doubt we will even get a cut in April. So be lucky you can still make some money

Not really, its not really sticking on the pavement too much, plus my contracts ended April 1st. Just puts me behind and makes everything even more wet. Oh well.

ya definitely a late spring around here eh! thought for sure we were done with the snow and now its back...but not for long. I think its going to be another few weeks before were done with all the rain and things start to dry up enough even start spring cleanups. Gona be a short season, but I don't think we'll have a drought like last year. Should be a good season once things finally get going.

Twin Cities north of here looking at 6" of snow. Here, we don't have anything but the 7 day forecast temps are in the 40's which is just too low to get anything to perk up let alone grass. I am thinking it will be another week before I possibly start anything lawn related. Could shrub trim now though I guess.

I'm betting it will be 2 weeks if not more. More snow forecasted this coming week. There's still frost 2"-3" down
