    Well, we don't need to worry about crabgrass that already germinated, if any.

    This morning when I headed out the door at 4:30, it was 22 degrees out, I live about 30 miles north of St. Paul, MN.

    It's 9 am and about 20 minutes ago it crossed 32 degrees.

    I had to come back home and put the PG Magnum in the garage. It wasn't supposed to get that cold last night, so I left it in the enclosed trailer.

    This morning the nozzles were froze, so I've got the heat cranked up to 80 in the garage. Hopefully by 10 am I can get back to cleanups before we lose Thurs-Sun to rain / snow mix.

    Nothing like highs in the upper 30's-lower 40's and the lows below freezing to get that grass fired up.

    Your lucky you didnt get the snow we got here. We still have snow on the ground from the other day. Mainly just on the north sides of buildings, and along the blvd's. It MIGHT be gone today, so hopefully tomarrow I can get in a full day of dethatching and clean ups, because like you said -- rain on thursday:hammerhead:

    Home for lunch and working the neighbor. It is sunny but about 35 here. No snow but the ground temp is cold and the grass is damp. Somethings have to go but this weather is holding me up and I am watching dollar signs click by!
