    Well mid January we had a good snow almost 4 inches on the ground. That is the most we have had here since 1993 snow storm almost 16 inches. Well last week we had 80 degree temps all week and had all types of spring plants blooming. Well a storm moved in and when it left..... SNOW..... Yesterday on prom day it snowed again another 3 inches and it stuck very unusual for use. What do you think this weather will do to our grass.... is it going to be detremental or is it just a thing....

    Iam not down there or from down there but it seems to me if that happened up here in Indiana the snow would create a insulation factor and not hurt the grass much if any but if it got really cold and grass was exposed the tips would turn brown bigtime since it was already growing( iam assuming it was growing with 80 deg temps ) we had that happen to us last spring grass was lush and growing and got really cold ( down in the teens ) for a couple of nights and it burnt the tips of grass really really bad . in that case the only thing you can do is cut it and cut the tips off , it will snap back ,grass is tuff just think of something that can go dorment when we have no rain for 4 or 5 weeks and it usally snaps back with a good soaking of water
