Let this day be proof of how terrible last winter was for snow lovers like myself. We had hardly any snow at all, and it was mostly a mild winter, save a couple of weekend arctic blasts. The grass only went partially dormant this winter.
It was really greening up the past couple of weeks, and I was suspecting that it was going to need to be cut in March. Sure enough, after the rain and thunderstorms last week, it really greened up and started growing. Yesterday I noticed it, so we charged the lawnmower battery.
I thought since it was sunny and fairly calm today, I would go ahead and cut the grass. It could have waited, but I thought why not just do get it done while it’s dry? The Karens around here might whine about it if I don’t mow when they see fit. At least the lawnmower wasn’t a big fuss to get started like the old gas one. It was a matter of putting the battery in and pushing the button to start it.
I don’t recall ever having to mow in March. Not even growing up back in the Philly suburbs where things were a bit earlier than here. Oh, well. I have spring fever now and am ready for drinks on the patio and enjoy some thunderstorms. Any snow that falls now would just be a waste. It would be nice to get some evenings on the patio before the mosquitoes go crazy.
