  3. I'm just south of the snow belt (I-70) by 50 miles.
    I mowed 2 lawns today. Been mowing for a week.
    But I do zero snow removal. Averages 2 snows per year here.
    Not enough snow to pay for a snow blade.

    I was hoping the second or third week of April. Looks like I'm going to be plowing snow tomorrow morning though. I'm tired of the snow already. Bring on the warm days and green grass already. What part of MI are you from Tiedeman?

    I was shooting for the week of April 14th too. It's been over 10 years since I've had to start later than the week with a Monday closest to the 15th - but this year we may be starting on the week of the 21rst if things keep going the way they are (although the later part of this week is supposed to be all 50s and above - that'll hopefully get things popping).

    I've mowed the greens here once, and my own yard twice already, yes, my own yard twice already because I wanted to see how well it striped with my new kit.:D
