The weather here in MN is two months ahead of schedule. Our snow is gone. Really its gone, a normal time frame for grass being exposed from under the snow pack is mid March. Our temps have been in the 40's or at least above freezing for the past month. This will eliminate the flood potential for us and our neighbors to the south. Im wondering if this is a good thing or a bad thing for the turf? In a normal Winter the snow pack melts from March 7th to around the 30th, leaving soggy, puddled lawns through mid to late april depending on the snowfall amount during the year. This year the puddles have already formed and are absorbed. My normal start date is April 15th, with a full schedule on May 1st. It wouldnt suprise me to be on a full schedule by April 1st this year. Anyone else remember a Winter this mild or having an unusually early start date?
