    It was 82 in KC yesterday but 50s and low 60s are on there way for a week or so. We have some freezes coming also.

    The good news is I already have my tan started ;)

    Out of that 4-8" thats was possible, we got about 4-8 flakes of snow, in my area some of the bigger companies are already out doing clean ups.

    Just leaves us more time to do important stuff.
    sleep.:laugh:

    I'm just glad I havn't put down the pre-emergent yet.
    The stuff I use says not to apply during cold weather.

    This is on the label-------


    ---------------------------

    cold weather, excessive moisture, high soil pH, high soil salt
    concentration, or drought can weaken turfgrass

    and increase the possibility of turf damage from this product.

    too early for spring clean ups.....way to muddy around here. We need some warm sunny days!! and way to early for pre-emergents. Just have to continue getting equipment ready and wait.
