It is 0 degrees outside, we have a foot of snow.  Nothing will green up until the end of March.

 

Looking at the weather map, lots of the country has temperatures warm enough to grow grass.  Florida, Texas, California, Louisiana?  Who still cuts grass in January?  Do your trees loose their leaves?  How can you tell its winter?

I think they know it's winter, because their population doubles, as alot of guys from the snowy areas, go

down there, and cut their grass. :D

I've mowed in January before.  Mostly for mower testing purposes, but the grass is still green....what grass that isn't crab grass that is.

Due to lack of rain, we didnt have much grass to mow when it was warm enough to do that.

2012 was an odd lawn mowing year.  I had to mow in March for the first time ever.  I also had to mow in November, also a first.

if the grass would have grown into dec i could have cut it as we didnt get any snow till christmas eve where im at. but i think it was late oct or nov the last time i cut any grass. i did get close while plowing snow though so the front yard might be shorter then the back now

Mowing the grass is only a dream today.  Reality is that it is currently 19f.  and snowing here.....weather forecasters are predicting temperature to -8f. Monday morning!
