    I dont know we had a good foot of snow on April 27th in northern Mn last year. I am not looking forword to mowing season at all. Plowing and working on equiptment is what I really enjoy. I hate working in the heat and coming home covered in grass everyday.

    How did we manage that? I'd think it would be more like 10/30 or 11/30

    A few years ago it snowed a foot just before memorial day so we had a hard time getting the cemeteries mowed in time.

    I love Mn summers...and winters.
    I moved here from Texas and can say it's not exactly night and day in differences. But at least for the Minnesota summer's, you can go outside and enjoy it. Mowing in Tx I had at least 4 heat related illnesses like heat stress, which are heat stroke related. Not only that, but also working in the heat then coming home to a house that the A/C units could not keep up because most August nights are over 90. Mowing realy sucked because jumping on a mower or grabbing a string trimmer or touching the side of your truck....
    was usually a scalding.

    I know it ain't over yet but,
    Good luck this year to Ya'll.

    Slowing down

    I won't put plow&spreaders away till april 15, just to be on the safe side, winter still has some fight in her, even though its going to warm up for the next 5-7 days, the cold will return, and we hav a negative nao setting up for the second half of march, so hopefully we can get a nice east coast storm payup. I'm hoping for a tulip crushing snow :D

    Won't put away plows until after Memorial Day. I have put all the plows up on the shelf before and had to take them back down before in April. Labor day to Memorial day possible snow season here.
