    I thought we were far enough south (Des Moines), but I guess not. Lost a day of production last week. Lost two days (so far) this week. All because of rain, snow, sleet, hail.

    First pic here shows "silver dollar-sized" snow flakes taken about 3:30 CST. Second pic shows snow cover on turf five minutes later, and it's still coming down.

    Local weather guys are calling this "the winter that never ends". As I finish posting this, I now cannot see any turf whatsoever (snow covered). Not good. Figured you all enjoy pics, cuz I sure do. Better than reading all the time. Had a customer call in today that was scheduled for five app's....now he wants round 2 thru five..can't say I blame him????

    That aint nothin, we got over 6" of snow on Sunday. This will be a late start for us compared to last year.

    the thing that is striking about those pictures is not the snow, but the fact that the house still has Christmas lights and reindeer in the front lawn! I guess spring is slow coming for the homeowners as well.

    Always a time saver when you leave them up all year round.

    Any bets on whether there is an old shrivelled up pumpkin laying around there some place?
