A measurable snow
Our first measurable snow is on the ground since we came to Deerfield more than two years ago. The official measurement at the airport was a half inch. (No laughing from Minneapolis, Lem.)
My plan was to spread some grass seed before our first snow, always the best time to sow seed randomly, but we were out of town and so I missed my chance. I hope we have a least one more good snow so I can do my seeding trick. As the snow melts it draws the seed down into the soaked ground to just the correct depth.
One more snow and then bring on spring.
