    I forgot to ***** about the reason why I have time to be on the computer today...
    It was 80 degrees a few days ago...and I don't think a drop of rain all April... couldn't get handle everyone who wanted their sprinklers turned on

    Today we got 3 inches of snow so far....

    already ran my sprinklers once so the backflow preventer doesn't freeze... (should have taken a picture of that)

    i'm in Grand Rapids MI and we got some snow here, not much, but some. will this harm the grass now that its not dormant? i'm sure the water were getting from it is good, but how about the cold?

    The weather didn't really affect me. We were installing on Saturday; we are installing today. Likewise with turn-ons.

    And I wanted to whine about a little rain...........Guess I'll enjoy the inside work I planned for today and be really glad we've seen the last of the snow for this season.
