I could have cut one last time but didn't and now it's dormant and I'm ignoring it!

With the torrential downpours right now, getting all these leaves up is going to be a major pain in the rear!

I have mowed as late as Thanksgiving and as early as the first of March. It all depends on the temperature and rainfall. My biggest battle in the fall are leaves, acorns and gum balls. Tons of acorns. Fortunately I have a tow behind leaf vac and three fine quality acorn gathering machines at the house that make it easier.

many years ago i had a guy in the neighborhood who moved out from the new york city. I was mowing 3 acres of leaves with my grandfather's old wheel horse he stared at me like I was crazy and later asked what was I doing?

In 2012 it stayed warm to mild all winter, I was just moving in the new house in January. I planted grass the weekends after Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2011, and mid January of 2012 when we moved in, all three times the grass was up and green in 2 weeks. That year I had to start mowing in early March.
