Ahhh I'm home. Home sweet home. Great little vacation but sure is GREAT to be home. Except my grass was way high. I had a battery tender on the Scag's battery but still it turned very slow. Would not start. Had to get my big boy charger and use the auto start mode to start the Scag. Started right up. Put battery tender back on it when I was done. Made sure it had good contacts. Hope that helps.

As for mowing .... I had to set my cut to 4 1/4 and got her done without to many clumps. Barely got done, closed up pole barn to walk to house and the rain started. Good timing for a change. Wife worked on flower beds so she got to use the RTV to haul some clippings away. I'll find something to get into with the RTV tomorrow.

Thanks to vaction this is my latest first mow of the season since we started keeping track.

Grass is greening up and beginning to grow. Should be ready for the first mow of the season in a few days EXCEPT its snowing again

If its only a few inches think the zero turn will blow away the snow while cutting the grass?

Weve had warm weather between snows all month. The snow the other day didnt stay around long. Never went under 32 somit all melted. More snow coming this afternoon so I may get the chance to mow and snowblow at the same time.

Heres the front yard.

I did notice the grass around here starting to green up. Awesome. Robins galore all around. Won't be long till mowing starts. I'm guessing I'll mow the last week of March or first week of April. Actually looking forward to it at this point. 27 degrees here this morning. Yeah, I'm ready for 60 and 70 degree weather.

Theyve pushed the snow forecast to tomorrow. For today were enjoying a beautiful spring day clear, 38 degrees and 40 mph wind gusts.

Still have not mowed here. We were at 60 yesterday. Nice. But today we are at 30 degrees with snow. So far light snow. Hope it stays that way.

We got around 3" of snow on the ground over night.
Calling for lows in the 20's most of next week.
Likely be into May before we do our first mow.

Yea, same here (of course since I live about 30 miles south of you).
Snowing right now. It's the 2nd week of April. It should stop snowing by now.

Well, I got the lawn rolled the other day. It was snowing when I did it.

I finally shut down the wood stove this morning. Was hoping it was done for the season but I see temps dropping back into the 20's next week. It's been running 24/7 for about 7 months now. That's too long.

Temps are going up this weekend so I may mow then but the grass isn't really growing yet.

Temps in the 70's here for the next few days. But like you said Brian, the grass is not growing yet. It does not really need mowed. Next Monday we have a chance of snow. Temps in the 50's all next week ...so, I might mow tomorrow instead of waiting till it needs it in the cold. Mowing usually kicks off the growth so it grows fast ....decisions decisions.

I mowed yesterday. It needed it in 3/4 of the 4 acres I mow. This is the latest 'first mow' since I started keeping track. 4/13. Prior to this my latest mow was 4/10. The past two or three years I've had to mow the last week of March. Snow predicted for Monday 4/16, so I'm glad I got er done. Temps will be much lower next week. We tied for record high with a temp of 86 for yesterday.
